Scott Johnson Reviews Heroes

I’m still mighty mad at NBC and iTunes for that “free download” scam from a couple of weeks ago, so I haven’t had a chance to watch the kick off episode.  As soon as I get to my TiVo it is first on the list, and I’ll post my views here. Until then, Scott Johnson at Extra Life has posted his views and comments on the debut: Why does everyone have to be young a pretty? Why can’t we have an old man or something? I know we get the fat cop next week, and we have the funny Japan…

Screw You NBC, and Your Damn Heroes Show

So NBC made a huge to-do over Heroes being made available on iTunes for free beginning September 1. The day came and went, and still no word on where the free show was. So here is the low down on this “wonderfully” thought out campaign by NBC to get people to watch their show.

Now you can see it for free on iTunes beginning September 1, 2006. (press release) NBC’s marketing in the digital arena takes a new turn as the network expands its corporate partnerships with National CineMedia, Nissan and Apple’s iTunes to cross-promote its new Fall drama “Heroes” by finding new ways to incorporate the products into scripts organically and offering consumers the chance to be the first to see the series.

Heroes to Debut on Yahoo! Before NBC

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…
