    Why does Apple not release TV Shows on iTunes the day after they air?

    I think that 24 hours is way too long but that is just my opinion. Also season 2 of Sleeper Cell never made it to iTunes.

    Thanks

    I remember there were problems with Stargate, but that's when they were switching the shows to the higher-res and releasing the new iPods.

    Apple is probably just backed-up...

    Maybe getting ready for :apple:TV?

    I dont know but it is really annoying, I wish I did not buy the season pass.

    I don't think the season pass affects it- The message I'm getting says the episode "has not yet been made available to download". In other words, it's listed, but there's no actual video file to download whether you've got a pass or not.

    I agree, it's annoying to see the episode right there but be unable to download it. But if you can't wait ~24hrs, couldn't you just watch on TV the day it airs?

    Surely isnt it the time it takes apple to take the show and convert it into their preferd format and upload it? Blocking out swear words etc . . . Im only guessing becuase we dont have shows in the UK

    (DAMN YOU APPLE!!!!)
