NBC adds to their streaming lineup

Andy RichterNBC has announced that they plan to stream their mid-season shows, The Black Donnellys, Andy Barker, P.I., and Raines on NBC.com. The network is also set to stream all produced episodes of Andy Barker and the pilot of Raines before their premiere dates. There will also be web exclusive content for both The Black Donnellys and Andy Barker.

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.

Cat, you really can't go wrong with either of those shows. I'm hoping the extra exposure helps Friday Night Lights. It seems to hold on to the viewers it gets, but is struggling to get them in the first place.

It excites me that they're going to have full seasons of both Heroes and Friday Night Lights up. I haven't watched these shows, but I think I will if NBC actually does put up the full seasons.

NBC seems to be smart enough to realize that no one wants to pay for the episodes, iTunes, so they have to make them free.
