In an effort to build up more interest in The Nine, Warner Bros. is offering a free download of it's pilot episode.

In a story from Variety, they also report that Fox is giving viewers an early look at The O.C. by offering up the first two episodes of the new season starting on October 26. This is one week before the season kicks off on November 2. The second episode will be available online the week before it airs as well.

These episodes can be viewed on "MySpace.com and Fox TV Station Group's 24 locally owned Fox station Web sites."

The move by Warner Bros. is to get a bit more support for the The Nine, which has "struggled in its post-Lost Wednesday night slot."

The show will be available on Amazon, iTunes and AOL.
