It’s been a while coming, but Canadians will finally be able to purchase television shows through Apple’s iTunes software.
“We’re thrilled to bring television programming to the iTunes Store in Canada in time for the holiday season,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “We’re off to a great start with hit shows from CBC, CTV, Comedy Central and MTV Networks, along with the best of classic and current NHL action.”
Programming for iTunes Canada includes CBC’s comedy programs “Little Mosque on the Prairie” and “The Rick Mercer Report,” and reality programming “No Opportunity Wasted” and “Dragon’s Den.”
CTV’s is also onboard with “Corner Gas,” dramas “Instant Star,” “Degrassi: The Next Generation” and “Robson Arms.” Comedy Central’s “Drawn Together,” “The Sarah Silverman Program” and “South Park” are also on the roster.
Apple has also added MTV Networks programs “Avatar: The Last Airbender” and “The Hills.”
And what would Canadian TV be without hockey — NHL Games of the Year, including top NHL games in their entirety for the 2007-2008 season, as well as Stanley Cup Classics and a five-game bundle of great Stanley Cup Final games.
Shows will cost $1.99 Canadian.
Not bad, eh?
