I got on another Mac that can run iTunes 8 and tried again to download the new HD video content. The file sizes are ridiculously-large! A 20-minute show for 1.33 GB? A 43-minute show for 2.2 GB? Who's supposed to be paying for this bandwidth? Who's supposed to be paying for the storage for these files? I don't even have enough hard drive space to download last week's freebies. Is Apple going to give me a 2 TB Apple TV soon? My download time estimate in iTunes shows 22 hours required for 2.2 GB of video to download, and I don't have any bandwidth left for anything else while iTunes is downloading. It's cheaper and easier for me to simply buy the DVD copies of what I want to watch. I'll keep maintaining the freebies list, but I'm not downloading much more from iTunes TV. I suppose that I could delete the HD copy from the downloads list and only download the regular copy that is bundled with it, but the price tag is still $2.99 per video even if I don't get the HD copy. Why are we wasting so much Internet bandwidth when we could be shipping DVDs instead? It seems to me that shipping DVDs is cheaper than paying for bandwidth, servers, and associated costs for millions of huge downloads. I'd rather pay Apple to write a DVD and ship it to me than to sit here with the computer wasting electricity while waiting for a download that may take a week to finish.
