Will you use the NBC On Demand?

right off the top of my head, I could name The Office, My Name is Earl, and 30 Rock as must see...
I used to watch Earl, gave 30 Rock a spin (wasn't for me), but my "must see" is The Office. Best Network show currently airing, IMO. Comedy must not be your thing NFLNut.
As far as NBC On Demand, I don't have waivers for it through DIRECTV so it's probably a no go, but I get it over-the-air and even if I didn't, as BonScott87 states, there's always Hulu.

I can't think of a show ON NBC that I watch! Why would I want to pay for shows I don't watch in the first place?
NBC has gone in the toilet! They've even managed to kill Sunday Night Football by putting Keith Booberman on it! I watch EVERYTHING that has ANYTHING to do with football. But I CANNOT STAND Sunday Night Football with that idiot on it, and have thus deleted it from my schedule! I've always watched two games on Sunday, and USED to watch three. Now, I'm back to two.
You call yourself an NFL nut but you only watch 2-3 games every Sunday?

Does NBC/Uni really think they will be able to generate enough revenue to really make it worth providing the service under this model?
I love tv, every new season I build out a full chart to make sure all of the new shows are covered on one of my dvrs but I don't think I would ever use this service unless it was free. Why would a viewer pay for an episode if he/she already can record it for free?
I understand the itunes model and even hulu, but not directv or even cable. Now if there is online/cable/sat only features and specials not available on broadcast sure I get it. But wouldn't it be better to just push a commercial or two along with the vod episode and let it be advertiser supported??

The Little Rock NBC affiliate is notorious for filling up the screen with weather alerts every time it rains (which is extremely helpful when you are watching a DVR three days later), so I would occasionally use this feature if it were free.
