Facebook Signs TV Deal - WSJ.com

Have we seen every feasible permutation yet?... 

Comcast Corp. and Facebook Inc. are teaming up to give aspiring movie producers who are flooding the Internet with home-produced videos a way to get their productions on TV.

Under a deal, set to be announced today, numerous links will be established between the social-networking site and Ziddio, a new Web site dedicated to "user generated content" that Comcast is developing. The best videos created by Facebook users as selected by a panel of judges will end up on Comcast's video-on-demand service and possibly on a new show that Facebook and Comcast hope will be aired by a television network.
