NBC has announced most of their fall line up will stream for free or be available via Netflix before airing on the peacock network. NBC entertainment president Kevin Reilly announced Friday that viewers can watch shows like Heroes, Friday Night Lights, and Studio 60 on the net. Even though the shows will contain commercials, NBC is hoping the buzz surrounding the announcement will pull them out of their fourth place standing.
Heroes tells the story of ordinary people who wake up one morning with super powers. Throughout the season the heroes will attempt to connect with one another, but discover some are using their powers for good, while others are using their gifts for evil. There are several venues NBC will be using to stream content; Yahoo! will be streaming Heroes, which will make its network debut on September 25. The streaming video will be made available several days before.
