The article reports on the agreement entered into by the independent producers of Great Britain to provide Channel 4 a 30-day exclusive window for manipulating new-media rights. The decision put an end to a long bickering that would have caused Channel 4's ambitious plans for video-on-demand and other new-media initiatives to fail. Andy Duncan, Channel 4 CEO, stated that the deal will protect the company and secures them the 30-day exclusive window they need to launch a full on-demand service.
