Looks like Netflix subscribers get yet another feather to add to their caps. NBC has struck up a deal whereby flixers can watch episodes of some hit shows like “Heroes” the day after they’re aired on cable. You’ll be able to stream the new episodes, or get ones from earlier in the season on DVDs. Sounds sweet to me, mainly for those who haven’t taken the plunge and gotten a DVR. Interestingly, the guy at Reuters seems to have trouble with his space bar, unless “entertainmentmarketplace,” “timeseries,” and “ourtraditional” are hot new buzzwords I’m too out of the loop to have heard.
