HBO and Apple made the big announcement today that shows like “The Sopranos,”"Sex and the City,” “Deadwood” and “Rome,” are now available for purchase and download on the iTunes Store. Personally, I’m more excited about grabbing episodes of “Flight of the Conchords” and “The Wire” …or at least I would be if they were available in Canadian iTunes Store.
Television shows purchased and downloaded from the iTunes Store can be viewed on a Mac or PC, iPod nano with video, iPod classic, iPod touch, fifth generation iPod, iPhone or on a widescreen TV with Apple TV. “Sex and the City,”"The Wire” and “Flight of the Conchords” are USD$1.99 per episode, and “The Sopranos,”"Deadwood” and “Rome” are priced at USD$2.99 per episode. iTunes customers can also choose to purchase entire seasons of their favorite programs.
