What are webisodes?
Webisodes are a series of short video clips that reveal a brief storyline. They are distributed online.
Each webisode is an episode of a series, that is available online to download or for streaming.
Webisodes are specifically designed for viewing on mobile devices. They are typically shorter in length and must be tailored for the small screen size.
