Not that any of you across the pond have been waiting for this or anything, but if you haven’t seen it yet you might want to head over to Apple UK and checkout the main graphic.
Thanks to listener Jeremy for the tip off.
Yeah at last the UK has TV shows, however they are all American based TV shows. Nothing from the BBC, ITV or Channel 4. But at least there is something, unfortunately I have seen all of the Lost episodes and not too interested in the others so far:
The shows available so far are:
Lost, Seasons 1 to 3
Ugly Betty, Season 1
Desperate Housewives, Seasons 1 to 3
Commander In Chief, Season 1
Grey’s Anatomy, Season 1&2
Night Stalker, Season 1
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Season 1
That’s So Raven, Season 2 only
Disney’s Kim Possible, Season 1
American Dragon: Jake Long, Seasons 1&2
Avatar: The Legend of Aang, Season 1
Dora The Explorer, Season 2
Drake & Josh, Season 1
SpongeBob SquarePants, Season 3 only
Barrio 19, Series 1
Pimp My Ride, Season 4 only
Bam’s Unholy Union, Season 1
My Super Sweet Sixteen, Season 3 only
Laguna Beach, Season 3 only
South Park, Seasons 9 & 10
Jongleurs Unleashed, Series 1
Comedy Blue, Series 1
The World Stands Up, Series 2 only
That’s 70’s Show, Series 1
Disney’s Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
Handy Manny, Season 1
Disney’s Little Einsteins, Series 1
Genie In the House, Series 1
Let’s hope some classic BBC comedies make it on, Young One’s, Bottom, Alan Partridge, and of course the Blackadder’s.
Hope this helps
This is great news – and what is more they are only twice the price as the same shows in the US, Â£1.89 vs US$1.99 – just fantastic. But wait it gets even better. If you buy the whole series of That 70s Show from iTunes it comes to the value price of Â£35.99, gosh how can Amazon compete with that kind of pricing. Oh it seems to have done – you can buy the DVDs for Â£19.95 (even the RRP is only Â£29.99).
I am in Ireland. It’s now 10:30 pm on Friday night and still can’t see any TV shows on my iTunes Store.
Maybe it still only works from the UK?
Still in Ireland :) …. and its now Sunday 18:20. No sign of any TV shows on iTunes from here!!
Maybe the marketing department is ahead of the IT department.
I guess we have to hold on for another wee while.
Hmmm. And Canada waits… sigh
@EricC: The Irish store is a completely different kettle of fish from the UK one I’m afraid. There are all sorts of differences, not just the lack of TV shows, which will undoubtedly be the subject of a separate licensing agreement. (We in Ireland have never had any “free tunes of the week” or that sort of thing either, AFAIK.)
