I hope it includes "Nova" - been watching that show all my life.

It would be stupid if MS was charging you for this, considering that one can watch PBS for free even on antennae on a TV that it not even compliant with the 2009 digital tv standard.

Not everyone has access to PBS. Nor On Demand.

And the same can be said about shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CW. You can get all those channels for just having a TV and a basic antenna. I guess then by that thinking they might as well just give those big box season DVD's from the stores away for free.

And going further, by that thinking, just about every pop-culture thing (except video games) should be free. Movies are played on TV every now and then for free. CD's and song downloads (they're played on the radio so hey, why not give them out for free (legally of course)).

If you want the option to watch/listen whatever you want whenever you want, you have to buy them (or pirate).
