But even better, download it to your phone & get addicted by texting WISH to 61616. (The shortcode works on any network in the UK, and hopefully soon also in the US and Australia).
Even on the GPRS network, downloading these snippets of high-quality video works surprisingly well. Sadly your average GPRS business phone (like the Motorola Razr) doesn't have anywhere near the processing or graphics capacity to play back video like this in a watchable form. I haven't tried it on a smartphone, but I certainly hope the experience is better because otherwise mobile video will be off to a slow start!
In my view, watching Desperate Housewives on a video iPod is always going to be a niche market. Once the novelty of downoading TV shows on iTunes wears off, most people will go back to watching them on their Tivo. Mobile video requires original programming, and this series is a good example of the kind of quality that can be achieved with limited resources. Great stuff Ben, and please keep them coming!
