    First off can I buy The Office on Apple TV? (I know I cannot rent it for .99 cents, but can i buy each episode for 2.99)

    If the answer is yes, and I buy it on Apple TV can I play it on my computer, and iPhone as while?

    If the answer if no, can I buy the episode of The Office on my computer or iphone and sync/stream it to my Apple TV.

    Also about Apple TV vs Roku:

    Roku lets you buy everything from AMAZON VOD which is also cheaper than iTunes on most cases.. (1.99 instead of 2.99) but the only problem I have with Roku is I can't play it on my iPhone). So please don't suggest I get the Roku or something.

    Both Amazon VOD and iTunes are 2.99 for HD and 1.99 for SD.

    Ah I see so they are the same price, except VOD doesn't have any iPhone app, and the power of iTunes. (which I like because it is so cross-platform between apple products atleast).

    Also quick question,

    Why can't you rent Iron Man 2 on iTunes,

    but you can on Amazon VOD for only 3.99 (Oct. 5th)?

    Any particular rule iTunes is following like (30 days or something), or will they be getting the rentals on Oct. 5th as while? I noticed that Iron Man 1 isn't for rent either on iTunes.
