NBC had a public breakup with iTunes, moved to Amazon, and some speculated it was due to NBC being unhappy with pricing. But in a surprise move, NBC announced that it will start offering free rentals of its TV shows. The “free” will be subsidized by ads and is limited in time, meaning after 7 days, the download doesn’t work anymore. But, free is free and its a download, rather than a streaming video.
