Will you use the NBC On Demand?

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.
