Wil Wheaton Asks Audience to Watch His Show in a Way That “Counts”

The first episode of “The Wil Wheaton Project” aired for free on Hulu.

The second episode? Only available on Syfy.

Technically, you can stream it on Hulu if you are “a subscriber to one of the following participating TV providers,” e.g. Dish, Verizon, etc. It’s also streamable at Syfy.com if you have an account with a valid TV provider. It is not currently available for purchase on its own unless you work through a provider or cable company; you can’t buy an episode for $1.99 on iTunes or Amazon.

This is frustrating not only to potential viewers, but also to Wil Wheaton. As he wrote on his website:

I’ve heard from countless people who legally watched our first episode that they wanted to watch our second one, but discovered that they couldn’t watch it in a legal way. It’s out of my control, so I can’t do anything except point out over and over and over again that the show is losing potential viewers, and that’s really frustrating to me.
