NBC adds to their streaming lineup
In addition to all that, Medium and Identity will also begin streaming full episodes in March. That brings NBC's total of full episode streaming series to 13 when added to The Apprentice, Heroes, 30 Rock, Las Vegas, Friday Night Lights, Passions, Studio 60, and My Name Is Earl. The network also plans to make the full seasons of Heroes and Friday Night Lights available, starting with the pilots, beginning in the spring.
While still far from perfect, seeing the networks jump whole hog into the new technology is a good sign. And the inclusion of the full season of Friday Night Lights is an interesting choice. Combined with rumors that NBC has asked about moving the production from Texas to L.A., could it be that Friday Night Lights is coming back for a second season?
I had resigned myself to the fact that this one was going to go down as another great show that nobody watched, figuring the complete series DVD set would slot itself nicely in between Firefly and Keen Eddie on my media shelf. Now, it seems there may still be some hope.
