"Doesn't look like NBC will be joining iTunes' $0.99 TV show rental service anytime soon, as CEO Jeff Zucker thinks it's not enough to charge for 22-44 min. of... whatever soon to be cancelled sitcom they've shoved up against that inane reality show on that other network."
This goes back to the previous post, about an all in one digital living room. This story is a perfect example of why you aren't going to get everything on one device at this time (unless you want to keep paying for overpriced cable or satellite access), because you will never get everyone to agree on pricing or usage or distribution. I may need something different for various programs I like to watch, be it Hulu or Boxee or iTunes. My media appetite isn't going to be fulfilled with one device. For now anyway.
