Will You Miss Getting NBC Shows on iTunes?

One place NBC's new show "Chuck" won't be this fall is on your iPod. A dispute between NBC and Apple means that no episodes from NBC's new fall shows will end up being sold through the iTunes music store, and episodes from shows iTunes already carries, such as "The Office" and "Heroes," will be pulled at the end of the year. (NBC will now sell through Amazon Unbox.) Apple says NBC wanted $4.99 an episode; NBC says that's not true. Theoretically, the two sides are still negotiating, but if this holds, will you miss having the iTunes option for watching NBC shows?

Personally I think NBC is making a mistake, the popularity of the Office is due, in some part, to its availability on iTunes. It was a great tool for spreading the word about a new shows and making a "cult show" into a mainstream one.

I would buy few of The Office Episodes if I really thought the episode was fantastic..and that only happened a total of 2 times throughout all three seasons. If I ever missed an episode of The Office or Heroes, I'd watch the on fanpop anyway, so it doesn't bother me either way.

I downloaded some Office and Friday Night Lights from iTunes. You can't watch full eps of the Office on the NBC website, which is just terrible. NBC is on crack for pulling out of iTunes.. no one would pay $5 an episode! If they don't start streaming the Office on their website to compensate for the iTunes pullout, I don't know what I'll do if I miss an episode. Bad NBC, bad!!

i think $2 an episode is still a little much, but its easier than my dvr (because i'm technologically challenged), and i can watch episodes anywhere, and i'm too impatient to wait for the dvd set... but you won't catch me paying $5 for any half hour episode of anything. that's unbelievable. i hope that's untrue.

I have a season pass for the office and have ever single episode on my ipod which I watch all the time. But I would never EVER pay $5 an episode. That is outragous.

You can watch NBC full episodes on their website so why would you pay for it?

As a last resort, I'll download a show off iTunes, such as if I can't find a rerun and my TiVo tripped up. It doesn't happen often, but it's happened with The Office once or twice, so hopefully my TiVo's on the ball more this season.

Of course, at $4.99 an episode I wouldn't watch any anyway. :cry:

I don't download TV shows. Plus, I'm not a big fan of i-tunes and the ipod anyway.
