Sesame Street on Internet

Sesame Workshop has expanded the distribution of "Sesame Street" to the Internet, with content now available on iTunes, Hulu and YouTube. The 35th season is currently available from iTunes, with each episode priced at $2, and additional seasons to be available in the future. Viewers can also access hundreds of select clips on YouTube, or clips and longer segments available on Hulu. The programming is full of celebrity guests, such as B.B King, Natalie Portman, Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, Norah Jones, and Christopher Reeve.

Sesame Workshop will receive 70 percent of the revenue from the iTunes episodes, according to Reuters. The organization expects a limited number of online viewers initially, in comparison to the millions of weekly television viewers. The older episodes are unlikely to be sold on the Internet, however, as the companies involved avoid cannibalizing the DVD distribution.
