submit to reddit will start a new service called NBC Direct which would allow people to download episodes of TV shows for free
These should start appearing on at the beginning of October. On top of being ad-supported, they will also expire within a week of the episode's original air date, not a week after the download completes. (Yes strange I know)

Here is a list of shows that will be available at the launch of NBC Direct:
  • Heroes
  • The Office
  • Life
  • Bionic Woman
  • 30 Rock
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Late Night with Conan O'Brien
  • The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

These downloads will only work on Windows-based PCs as NBC severed its ties with Apple's iTunes at the beginning of the September.
