NBC is cool
In reaction to their viral videos constantly being posted to sites like YouTube, NBC has made one of the coolest moves any media company has made toward new technology in recent knowledge: they are offering shorts like "Lazy Sunday" and the new "Natalie Raps" for FREE on a new section of their site, nbc.com/Video!
From the site:
"Now, instead of searching the web for "borrowed" NBC highlights, you can go to the source! We've taken your viral favorites and gathered them into one convenient location. Watch. React. Tell a friend."
The videos are higher quality than was available on YouTube, and surprisingly it is completely ad-free. Heck, I wouldn't even mind a short ad if it meant I could watch an episode of Conan for free.
The most interesting thing in this whole situation is the fact that they still sell some of these clips in the iTunes Music Store for $1.99!
Someone at Apple is pretty pissed right now...
