‘The Office’ on your iPhone

The Office iPhone

You can now watch full episodes of ‘The Office’ on your iPhone for free!

Just go to http://m.nbc.com/iphone from your iPhone and then click the Video tab.

Naturally, playback using WiFi is highly recommended over AT&T’s much slower EDGE network.

The good news is that AT&T may soon be offering FREE hotspot WiFi to its customers, including many Starbucks locations! So you can watch ‘The Office’ while sipping your morning latte. (I tried this at my local ‘bucks in Mountain View this morning — it works!)

And hopefully more episodes will become available soon — right now it’s just ‘Job Fair’ and ‘Did I Stutter?’.

Still, it’s not a bad start …

  1. By the way, this also works great on the Ipod Touch as well… I’m watching Job Fair as we speak :)

  2. I just tried this on my iPod touch and it works ok on that as well. It’s great to know I can watch the episodes without the annoying, repetitive ad breaks-it will especially make the gym much more tolerable. However, as great as this is, I would still love to see NBC return to iTunes.

  3. Awesome! Now I can watch it on my phone at work instead of on the computer at work … and I can pretend I’m a little more productive! :)

  4. What would also be great is if NBC.com would enable Macs to download Office episodes (says it’s coming in “early 2008” – yeah right) or work it out with iTunes.

  5. I checked out this feature on my iPhone, and watched Job Fair for the third time on my lunch break at work using WiFi. Of course the quality isn’t primo, but for free I will absolutely NOT complain. Thanks NBC! I hope you offer more shows this way but love that it started with The Office!

  6. You can also watch “Did I Stutter?” and “Job Fair” for free with Verizon VCAST phones. I’m sure it’s lower video quality than the I-phone, but for my meager standards it was smooth watching.

  7. Wow !
    Loved it. It actually works here too. That is amazing, though I’m not sure NBC knows that.. :P

  8. Oh man, I’m adding that to my home screen right now. Summer is looking brighter already!

  9. Tried it on my iphone up here in Canada, the videos aren’t region locked, so I was able to watch all videos with no problems,

    hurray!

    [from tanster: no geo-filtering! woo!]

  10. LUCKY people who have iPhones! My dad has one, and convinced me not to buy one because of how expensive they were. Yet another reason to break my phone contract!

  11. Holy cow I can’t believe how awesome this is! The quality is better than the normal you tube video quality. Now I just need to find some places outside my house with free WiFi!

  12. Oh, Tanster; why must you give us new Office-y distractions?! haha, thanks for the heads up; my iTouch loves The Office :)

  13. It would be nice if Nbc also made the episodes in the website downloadable for macs.

  14. Thanks, Tanster! YIPPEE!!! Even though I hate AT&T and miss Verizon, once again I am happy to have an iPhone. ;o)

    To #12- CARI: How do I add the link to my home screen?
