Studios Reach Deal With TV Actors

The Associated Press reports that The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists has reached a tentative deal with Hollywood studios on a three-year contract, both sides announced Wednesday morning. The deal establishes fees for content streamed and downloaded over the Internet and preserves actors' right of consent on the use of their voices and images in online clips, the union said. The deal reduces the chance of an actors strike. The larger and more combative of the two actors unions, the 120,000-member Screen Actors Guild, is set to resume its stalled talks with the studios Wednesday.
