NBC offering previews through Netflix

If you're a Netflix subscriber like I am, you might find this interesting. NBC is offering previews of two of its upcoming shows to Netflix subscribers starting on August 5. The premiere episodes of Aaron Sorkin's new series, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, as well as Kidnapped, a show about the abduction of a teenage boy from a wealthy family, will be available to subscribers. The DVDs will also feature trailers of other NBC programs. I can see why NBC would want to start off small with something like this, but it would be nice if eventually they and the other networks made a habit of pre-releasing all of their premieres in this fashion. I would think it might help to generate early buzz for their shows.
