    anyone notice that there is a big black space on the tv shows page? looks like potentially a lot of new content being announced today.

    looks suspicious...

    It's late Tuesday night where I am and for the last couple of weeks at about this time new tv content has been added...and I agree with you about all that black space...I'm hoping CBS comes to the party!

    But if iTMS really wanted to make a splash...Simpsons & Seinfeld would be awesome!!

    Testing the waters...

    Somebody from NBC said that they wanted to test the market in the UK before releasing lots of content...seems a highly unlikely scenario that a TV show download service would be successful in the US but not the UK, EU or Australia for that matter - I'm with you Chundles - it's time for the rest of the globe - can't Apple get their regional HQ's moving in unison? Or does Steve need to be at every negotiating table...?

    There's actually more to it than just that. You can buy a single episode of these shows for $1.99 like normal, or you can pay $9.99 for 16 episodes which will automatically download in the future as they become available. So essentially it's kind of like a paid video podcast subscription. I think it's a relatively great deal, considering each episode ends up being less than $0.99. It's also cool because chances are that most episodes of these shows will never make it to DVD, so this is your only (legal) chance to get them all.

    I really wish they would do the same thing with Conan.

    The need to do this for all shows, in season long plans. They sell old seasons for ~1.50 an episode (when you buy them all at once) but that's a bit pricey still, as it's not much less than a DVD set is inferior in many ways.

    Now, if you could PREBUY a season for ~$1 an episode (seems like prepaying should be cheaper, for some reason), or $25/year for most shows, AND they upped the resolution, I think they would be onto something.

    I'd actually be willing to pay for an as filled version. Not much, mind you, but pay. Maybe $10 for 25 episodes? Assuming, again, they were DVD resolution.

    Gah, when are they going to make an Airport Express AV so we don't have to buy a $300 iPod or a $600 computer to watch stuff on our TVs?! And, yes, .11g can easily carry enough data to stream DVD quality video.

    When I open up ITunes and click on Tv Shows, the LO SVU banner is one of the top three big banners on top, it happens each and every time I click on music store and then TV shows. When I click on the LO SVU bannner it defaults to Season 7 page and there's "Other Seasons" column there too. The content is blank though nothing to click on and buy.
