I think offering the shows like this is a really smart move on NBC’s part – for 2 reasons:
- I was easily able to catch up with the show and will likely continue to watch. If this hadn’t been available, I would have just waited for it on DVD.
- I actually had to wait for the commercials to play in their entirety with the streaming video. On TiVo, I just zap through them.
NBC seems to be jumping out ahead of the other networks when it comes to convergence between the web and traditional TV.
