In what might be a first, NBC has made available the pilot episode/premiere of their new show The Cape on an iPad before it hits television on January 9, 2011.
NBC is working really hard to promote their new show "The Cape" and it looks like they will be giving viewers with an iPad an early view of a one-hour pilot episode of The Cape via the free comic book iPad app from DC comics. The episode will be available for free on the DC comics app between January 5 and January 8.
If you don’t have an iPad, you can catch up on the premiere episode of The Cape on Sunday, 9th January, 2011 at 9PM EST. The series stars David Lyons ("ER") as Vince Faraday, a cop who is unjustly accused of a crime and becomes a secret crime fighter. After the premier, The Cape will return to it’s regular slot on Mondays at 9PM from January 17th, 2010.
So go ahead and watch the pilot episode of The Cape for free using your iPad. You can download the DC Comics application from here.
