NBC: “Thanks to Apple and iTunes, we’re making money we otherwise wouldn’t have made, so now we’re greedy bastards.”
I suppose some people might be compelled to try the new Fox/NBC Hulu.com service, which I read somewhere will require that you’re online to watch. But I’ll bet this action is going to push a lot of people — people willing to pay honest money for the convenience of downloading from iTunes — to the P2P services to download pirate copies. (It’s not encouraging that the Hulu page includes an image for the series Drive, which Fox cancelled after four episodes.
I give it 9 months before NBC announces a return to iTunes.
