NBC’s new app lets you watch your favorite shows for free


nbc app

NBC has finally stepped into the digital millennium, with the premier national network offering the ability to watch your favorite shows without a cent to pay. Aside from the full shows, you can also take a look ahead at NBC’s programming schedule, so you never have a reason to miss that must-see episode of The Blacklist or America’s Got Talent.

Several shows feature closed captioning support — simply tap the “CC” button while you’re watching a show to enable it. Of course, this app is only available to the American public and its territories. As long as you’re within the red, white and blue lines, though, you’ll be able to catch up on shows anywhere you can get WiFi, 3G or 4G (NBC obviously recommends WiFi whenever possible).

It’s sitting in the Google Play Store for free, so head over there to get started if you’re interested. Now, please excuse me while I go catch up on Troy and Abed in the Morning.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
