They're likely being released in five minute segments in order to optimize the number of viewers, since statistics show that the shorter video content is, the greater the percentage of viewers that will finish it.
But only Episodes 1 and 2 were released as two seperate videos. 3&4 and 5&6 have been released as single videos. At this point calling those episodes 3 and 4 and having a break for advertisements in the middle would seem to make more sense.
Well, that reveals exactly how many of these I've watched so far (only the first one). The answer above must be the correct one (they originally optimized these for web viewing as I described, but then Universal decided they wanted to push these out at a faster rate).
