    In total, about, um, maybe $300 total, at the most. But most people still use CDs/ "steal" the songs, I like to buy the stuff, and I like digital unless it is something special, and even then I'm apt to just get the iTunes release.

    At first a little.

    Now more since TV shows, movies, and audio books have been added.

    I have a lot of their free content. But other than that, I've only ever bought the first season of Grey's Anatomy for like 15 bucks and then quickly deleted the episodes off my hard drive because they were in full screen. ugh.

    Since there isn't an easy way to see what on my list was purchased and what was a freebie, it's kind of difficult. I have 764 items in my Purchased playlist, but at least half (I think more) are freebies, especially since now there are something like 2-3 songs/week and I try to get them all if I can.

    Overall though, I think I run an average of $1-2 per week, over the four years that I've had iTunes now. All songs -- I've only purchased whole albums a few times, and I've never purchased video content yet. So the $300-400 or so I've spent is a lot in one sense, but in a rate sense it doesn't bother me too much.

    Interestingly, though, I had a pretty big uptick in physical purchases (almost always used) over the same time period... so I probably only do 5-10% of my music spend on iTunes.

    0. When apple decides to provide us with good quality music, ill think about buying something. Till then i use other means of aquiring high quality songs.

    Maybe $20 total. It was a novelty way back when, but CD's and vinyl are still the way to go, IMO.

    Ditto. Anything I'd like on iTunes I can get in higher quality elsewhere.

    I would guess about $3000+.

    Most of that has been in purchasing movies and TV shows. Music was about $1400, most of that from complete collections such as Complete U2, Complete Led Zeppelin, Complete Bob Dylan, Complete Depeche Mode.

    46 movies

    TV shows:
    The Sopranos first three seasons
    Cops season 19 and 20. 20 was by episode only which cost about $60 so far for the season
    Weeds all three seasons
    24 all six seasons
    Lost all four seasons
    Reno 911 all seasons
    Bewitched
    Chips
    21 Jump Street
    I Dream of Jeannie
    The Addams Family
    Desperate Housewives, all seasons
    Hell's Kitchen
    Kitchen Nightmares

    Looking forward to buying even more stuff!

    Since 2004 when I first bought my iPod... $20? I prefer owning the CD and ripping it onto iTunes.

    To an extent I agree, BUT where I just ran into the "bummer" factor of iTunes movie downloads is when I was talking about a new movie and someone said "may I borrow it?" The answer had to be no because I can't lend out my movies when they're downloaded via iTunes. I have hundreds of DVDs that I lend out (and track using Delicious Library), I think I'll continue to buy the physical DVD. I hate saying no to people about things like that.

    Oh and I think I'm well into the $300 mark but I am not home to check.
