Hi, I just wanted to point out a very fundamental flaw in Apples grand plan at the minute (at least as far as the UK is concerned). I'm a recent convert...I love Apple....I breathe Apple ...I buy their products everyday but at the minute I see no compelling reason to buy a Video Ipod or buy the iTV. Theres one simple answer....CONTENT Tell me what content there is that makes the iTV or the Video Ipod a worthwhile buy for UK users and I'm not counting music video's here as not everyone likes that. TV Shows - Why doesnt iTunes UK have TV shows yet ????. The BBC *loves* new digital media and is spending loads of $$$ on it. They're launching simulcast 3G streaming on UK mobile networks (Virgin Mobile) so it seems silly to me that Apple hasn't at least negotiated a contract with them. For UK users, who here would love to be able to pay 99p to put last nights Eastenders episode on their iPod ?. Or what about paying for premium shows like Dr Who or the X-Factor from iTV. The fact that Apple is still to talk to the BBC and ITV and sort out *something* seems ridiculous to me. Also I'd love to pay for stuff like 24 and Lost and Battlestar Galactica and I'd prefer to not have to mess around buying itunes gift cards from the states. While it's technically feasible it's WAY too much hard work to buy gift cards off ebay or to find someone who will send you itunes US gift vouchers :/. If these shores were available in the UK store chargeable to my own CC's the chances of me getting a video iPod would skyrocket. Note - the BBC has stuff available online for FREE including shows like Dragons Den !!!! Films - We HOPE to go international in 2007. There is no cast iron guarentee that the UK itunes store will ever have movies. So really the question is.. What does Apple have in terms of CONTENT that makes either a Video Ipod or an iTV a wortwhile purchase at this time? The answer is NOTHING As much as I love Apple and their products (I have a Macbook and a Nano) I see no compelling reason to buy either of these products at this time.
