    NBC was on iTunes. However NBC wanted to charge users more by bundling things you probably not going to watch.

    The fallout resulted in NBC pulling from iTunes store, and many users ended up download the content for free, instead of paying on iTunes, because it's not available on itunes due to stupidity of NBC.

    You can also get a DVR, record it, and convert it to portable formats. Revenue to NBC = zero.

    Either case, iTunes gave NBC additional revenue which they threw away due to their ego and low IQ.

    That's what I do. Haven't bought a single show off iTunes, in a kind of solo protest against the prices in the UK (have they heard of play.com? no.)

    I think they have NBC Shows on Amazon, does that work like Amazon MP3's?

    I think I read that Microsoft has 'em up for whatever MS points = 1.99, so we should see the return of NBC soon enough..

    From what I understand, the Amazon shows will only play on Windows Media Player.
