Silicon Alley is reporting that you can now watch episodes of “The Office” and “30 Rock” on your iPhone. It is no secret that NBC is not a big fan of Apple and iTunes, having pulled their network shows from the iTunes Music Store last year. All you have to do to watch the episodes is go to NBC.com on your iPhone or iPod Touch (while on a wireless network, not EDGE), scroll down a bit to where it says “Watch Full Episodes” and pick your poison.
I would assume that this is a pilot to see if it is feasible to transfer their TV shows from flash on HULU.com to the QuickTime format that the iPhone and iPod Touch require. It sure would be nice if Apple allowed Flash on the iPhone.
The quality is pretty bad. While watching it, my wife said, “It looks like my contacts are all fogged over!” So, if you have nothing else to do, and you are somewhere around a wifi hotspot, it might be worth it to watch some super-low quality TV shows.Alley Insider
