Where can I (legally) watch BSG S4 online

Just finished up the season 3 set and would like to catch up before the series returns for its final set of episodes. SciFi has like 5 episodes but missing the first few. Any place to watch season 4 on line from episode 1 or purchase them individually? Please no spoilers BTW

I don't think there is any other place to watch it legally other than Sci-Fi or Hulu.com.

Unfortunately, Hulu only has episodes 6-10, which I assume is the same deal as Sci-Fi.

Universal HD just started airing S4, one episode per week, on Saturdays. They just aired the first ep of S4 last Saturday.

Not sure if you have an XBOX360 but I beleive they have the first 4 seasons for download. Unless you are talking legal AND free

Damn! Missed the first one. I was meaning to start recording those; I am currently finishing up season 3 on DVD.

Well guess I can read the S4 Ep1 recap and start with Ep2 Saturday. Not the greatest solution but at least I can catch up.

Why do people keep asking where they can find [show] online to watch, legally? If you can't find it on Hulu, or the channel's website, don't expect us to provide an answer. There's always the possibility of iTunes having them as well, if you want to pay for the episodes. So check those three places and you are golden.

Hope that they overlooked some possible venue perhaps? If johnnysd hadn't asked about online options, I wouldn't have posted about the Universal HD reruns.

To johnnysd: There's still a one-minute recap of the first ep on scifi.com:

In my case, I was not aware of Hulu before the post and as it turns out I did learn that it is on Universal HD so the thread was totally usefull in this case.

NBC Universal has returned to iTunes, so it should be up there again.

iTunes customers can choose programming from NBC, USA Network, SCI FI Channel, Bravo, Sleuth and NBC News including favorites such as the award-winning and critically acclaimed "Heroes," and the Emmy award-winning programs "The Office," "Battlestar Galactica" and "30 Rock."

Awesome sauce. We disconnected our cable earlier this year, and BSG was the main thing that really hurt to lose.

The first episode of Season 4 is currently free on iTunes. They have it in both HD and SD.

Well, I spoke too soon as it comes up as not available to download right now. It'll probably be up eventually.

Amazon unbox has them (handy but expensive if you have a tivo).

I think it is up now - 10 episodes for free? You need iTunes 8 though.
