MSN Video will stream for free the entire first two episodes of NBC’s upcoming drama crime series “Heist” for a week after each episode’s television premiere, NBC announced Tuesday.

“Heist” is scheduled to premiere Wednesday, March 22, at 10 p.m. (ET), with the second episode airing March 29.

NBC also gave MSN the exclusive rights to stream a 16-minute presentation of “Heist’s” debut episode. The presentation launched Tuesday and will run until the show’s March 22 premiere.

As part of the deal MSN.com will offer a “Heist” photo gallery, prominent billing on its TV and entertainment home pages and promotion on the video home page, among other placements. The “Heist” pact marks NBC’s first foray into providing content to MSN Video.

“Heist” is produced by Hypnotic, NBC Universal Television Studio and Sony Pictures Television.
