NBC back on iTunes

Post by Michael Pajaro » Tue Sep 09, 2008 8:13 pm

NBC and Apple have kissed and made up. For a while, NBC stopped offering their content on iTunes but now they are back and offering HD series. I haven't heard anything about the new series going up or if the original will get Seasons 3 and 4 posted online, but I think this is a good sign.

Just to let everyone know, I found an article earlier today online that seems to confirm the new series will be available as well on iTunes. Read more in the forum link located here:

I have just found out about today but I was surprised about that until today but my goodness it is a sure sign of good things to come with NBC Universal and Apple.

Do you think it will only be available to those within the US?

Great News! I thought NBC/Apple was done for good. Glad they are back. It means I can get KR there AND the new BSG when it starts airing again. I can't afford cable and I *got* to find out who the final Cylon is. :)

I did get an amplified DTV antenna but not sure if it's much better. Still getting stalled video and dropped sound at times. I hope it doesn't happen when KR is on! But if so, at least there's hope of finding it on iTunes.

Battlestar Galactica will be, from what I'm hearing from another forum for BSG. I'm glad because the final season starts in January and I can't wait! :)

I think if you go into iTunes and go into the store, they even have a block for NBC shows. That might give you a good list of shows they're carrying. Seems like they are carrying quite a few in HD.

I don't know about that one. I never watched it. Might want to check some Office fan sites as there might be some news there.

I thought so too. But it's said that it starts up again in January. I don't know. Or maybe they'll do one show that will reveal the final Cylon? I also remember awhile back they were going to make a new show called "Caprica" which was to be a spinnoff but the crew reached Earth so it's just all confusing.

They do have the current Knight Rider series on iTunes and in HD!!! :-) it is free :-)

You have to have iTunes 8.0 to get the HD.

if you "buy" the HD version it also gives you the normal tv resolution version. :)

although my PC chokes on 1080p, I can usually play 720p. But iTunes video playback is poor on slower machines...my PC has difficulties playing even the standard video version with iTunes. I need to build a new PC, new motherboard, new graphics card, etc. But financial difficulties, you know. Right now I have a PC Power and Cooling brand PC (yes, at one point they did make PCs), it is "slimline", that is to say, the case is about 2 inches tall, so I can't put a new graphics card in, I am stuck with Intel i810 integrated graphics! it has an AGP slot but I obviously can't use it.

i was searching through a few KR blogs during comp. class today cuz i got bored and i stumbled across this very subject and they said that it was in the itunes library! so i did some invvestigating when i got home and the new Series is on there! the first episode is already posted! You look under Knight Rider, of cousre and it under the episdoe name of Knight In Shining Armor (2008) It's only available to the US as of yet though...unlucky for me :( ...really like the poster they used though! :)
