Sci Fi channel is the first TV network to offer original content via a podcast. Battlestar Galactica’s Exec Producer has been feeding fans inside scoops via the Battlestar Galactica Podcast.
In an unprecedented move, NBC Universal‘s SciFi has been offering fans of its new hit series Battlestar Galactica access to free podcasts. This DVD-style audio commentary from ‘Battlestar’ executive producer and writer Ronald D. Moore utilizes the much-buzzed-about podcasting technology and is now available for weekly download at SciFi.com.
The exclusive five-week event has been providing cool scoops straight from the hit series creator Moore – and has given viewers an insider-only look into the final five episodes leading up the season’s dramatic conclusion on April 1 (tonight).
The SciFi Channel’s #1 Show
‘Battlestar Galactica,’ currently the highest-rated series on SciFi Channel, has attracted unprecedented critical acclaim since its debut in January. Moore has already become a popular presence on the SciFi.com site for his weekly “blog” musings.
What Is Podcasting?
For the uninitiated, “podcasting” is an evolution of technology popularly associated with Apple’s portable digital audio player, the iPod, and traditional broadcasting. It offers downloadable audio content (i.e. “radio” programs), which listeners can play on ANY MP3 players at their leisure. The event is part of SciFi’s commitment to exploring imagination in its programming as well as in viewer-based offerings. Building on this tradition, SciFi is the very first known television network to create an original podcast based on a dramatic series.
