The article announces the plan of the Arts & Entertainment (A&E) Network to introduce to its affiliates the syndication rights to "The Sopranos." Due to its huge investment in the show, A&E will promote local ad sales and high-definition and video-on-demand initiatives for the mob series due to begin its run in January 2007. The addition of the show to other A&E primetime fare will makes its service more attractive. The first two Sopranos will be presented in a wide-screen format.
