NBC for iPad 1.3.0 Update Brings Full Episode Streaming Video. No Strings Attached

NBC updated its iPad app to version 1.3.0. Like the recently updated TBS app (see: TBS very funny App for iPhone & iPad Now Provides Full Episodes. But, There’s a Catch), this update provides just one big feature update: The ability to watch full episodes of NBC TV shows for free. However, unlike the TBS app, this app is not hampered by cable and satellite provider agreements. So, there is no login of any kind required to view full episodes.

Like the TBS app, the NBC app provides video clips assocaited with NBC TV shows. However, some shows like “Chuck” (entering its fifth and final season), provide previews of new shows and video clips outside of show episodes. Chuck, Grimm and Free Agents, for example, include video clips recorded at or for this past summer’s Comic Con. The app also includes show recaps, trivia quiz games, photos from some of the shows and the current week’s schedule.

The addition of free full episodes appears to have moved the app’s average customer rating up to a an impressive 4.5 star (out of a possible 5) rating with 1100 ratings for version 1.3.0.
