The UK version of Apple’s iTunes Store now offers users the ability to purchase and download TV shows. It’s the first time an iTunes Store outside of the US has offered television content.
Shows include mostly offerings already available in the U.S., including series from ABC Studios, Disney, MTV Networks and Nickelodeon. Hit shows such as “Lost” and “Grey’s Anatomy” are the mix, as is “Ugly Betty.”
Locally-produced UK series include MTV’s “Barrio 19,” Nickelodeon’s “Genie in the House” and Paramount Comedy’s “Comedy Blue.”
Apple said that the UK iTunes Store currently offers 28 TV programs, priced at £1.89 per episode. Entire series (seasons, as they’re called in the US) are also available for purchase.
