NBC Universal Cable and Sci Fi Channel will debut never-before-seen recap special Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far via free-on-demand and broadband prior to the premiere of the series’ third season on Sci Fi Oct. 6.

Beginning Aug. 28, viewers will have access to Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far; select full-length episodes from seasons one and two; and a two-minute weekly sneak peek of upcoming episodes from the new season.

Participating affiliates offering the FOD content will include Bresnan Communications, Charter Communications, Comcast, Cox Communications, Mediacom Communications, Patriot Media, Time Warner Cable and Verizon Communications.

Sci Fi also created broadband content including an executive-producer video blog tracing the technical side of the show and audio podcasts featuring 45 minutes of commentary from previous episodes. The network said it will offer advertisers the opportunity to sponsor these new-media offerings.
