Is this something that CBS has said no to? I think that's what I heard on one of the podcasts, but I can't remember for sure.
They have to figure out a way to charge you for it and then a way for you not to share it with your friends. What they know will happen is they design it, stick it up for purchase, and a few people will buy it and the rest will just go download a torrent of it.
Until they can secure it to ensure maximum profit - they won't bother. Once they design a way to link the purchase to a authorization of use on your account (to refuse those who didn't buy it from logging into their account) then you may see it.
