NEW YORK ( -- CBS has stripped the 99-cent price tag from its cable video-on-demand distribution and is offering eight free, ad-supported VOD shows on Comcast's platform this fall season.

he network will sell advertising separately for the on-demand programs, which include "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "CSI: Miami," "CSI: NY," "Survivor," "NCIS," "Numb3rs," "Jericho" and "Big Brother." Last November, when CBS began offering shows through Comcast VOD, the network kept national advertising embedded in the programs but still charged 99 cents for each episode.
