Simpsons? Bleh, all the good jokes have been done! It's over a decade old!

Bring on Family Guy! :D

Oh, and War at Home is funny as hell too (I just love the inside-the-head thinking bits... hilarious!).

right on!

I think Fox would be awesome and I believe 24 would be the most d-loaded show. Think of how many folks wouldn't want to wait for their VHS or PVRs if they miss an episode. clickety click..barba-trick...new episode within a few minutes.
I would be all over this in a heartbeat.
i think grey's anatomy would be huge too.

i don't own an ipod video, nor will i due to how i live (stay-at-home dad/run my own biz), but man, if i commuted or was student with tons of time in b/n classes, i'd have one :)

just a matter of time before we can buy newly released movies as downloads as well. Now, that would be awesome! I personally don't have the time to visit a theatre, but i would certainly download new ones to watch at home.

Cheers,
B

I love 24! Can't wait for the new season, but I'd probably never download an episode unless I missed one... which pretty much never happens.

Once they release a widescreen iPod that could change though...

It's sooo hard to remember everything that goes on in one day, but I'm pretty sure I remember saying day 4 was my second favorite, which is after the first one of course.

SAVE ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT!!
SAVE ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT!!

if you like the show, buy the DVD. they might get cancelled for low ratings. it is one of the funniest shows there are.

Family Guy, Simpsons, American Dad, King of the Hill... Fox has a lot of great cartoons that are quite apetizing in small doses, perfect for the iPod. I really hope this comes through quickly. :D

We don't know what terms Apple would require for this deal. There may be more to it than Fox simply saying "ok, we'll play too".

You'd think Apple would be ready to deal, since they need more video content soon, but it could also be that Apple's terms aren't readily acceptable to Fox without a lot of negiotation, in the same way Sony has had a hard time making Apple music deals.

I agree. Pixar's DVD success has been attributed to the longer shelf-life of animated features, and this principle would definately carry over to sales on iTunes. If they had Family Guy, i would buy.
