Amazon and NBCU have announced that TV content from NBCU will now be available on Amazon Unbox, Amazon’s digital download service. Shows now available on Amazon Unbox include "The Office", "Heroes" and "30 Rock." Starting September 10, Amazon Unbox customers can download for free, before they air, episodes of the pilots for "Bionic Woman", "Chuck", "Journeyman", and "Life." New episodes will be available the day after they air on TV.

"With the addition of NBC Universal TV content to Amazon Unbox, fans now have the ultimate convenience for enjoying their favorite shows whenever or wherever they want," said Jean-Briac Perrette, President, NBC Universal Digital Distribution.

"This further expands our longstanding relationship to bring a robust content offering to the marketplace in a variety of ways that will benefit the consumer and, at the same time, protects our content."

"We are excited to bring NBC Universal shows like the award-winning The Office, 30 Rock and Battlestar Galactica to our Amazon Unbox customers," said Bill Carr, Amazon.com Vice President for Digital Music and Video.
