I've been trying to google and search the forums here to find an answer to this question. Specifically, I want to know if new episodes will be available to download before 10am Mountain Time on Friday after a new episode airs on Thursday. I want to be able to watch the episode with co-workers during our lunch break on Friday.

Does anyone know?

Surely someone has a subscription to a TV show and can comment on when the latest episodes become available to download?

The season 3 premiere is the funniest episode of The Office, ever! I was LOL really hard. :)

New episodes are usually posted to iTunes the day after they are broadcast on TV. This is only the case for new episodes.

:rolleyes:

On topic, I missed the season premiere on Thursday and spent all day Friday checking to see when it was available. Unfortunately that wasn't until about 4pm EST.

OTOH, I have checked other shows the next morning and they have already been upped. There really doesn't seem to be any set schedule. :(

That's useful info. I'll try and remember to check on Friday to see what happens this week. It would be nice if they were up before 11am so we could watch during lunch on Friday, but I suppose Monday will have to do in some cases.

I tried to check regularly this week to see when the new episode appeared in iTunes. It didn't show up at all on Friday and I didn't see it Saturday morning around 9am Mountain time. It was there by 7:20pm Saturday when I got back home.

I don't know specifically about the Office, but I can say that the couple of cable shows I tend to buy are rather sporadic, the same show can vary greatly: sometimes the next morning and sometimes not for a couple of days. Don't know if this is a network timed thing or an Apple time one (or a combo of both).

I didn't get my new Office episode until Saturday morning. I was running iTunes all day on friday, checking for purchases to no avail. I wish they could get them up quicker.
