Channel 4 'catch-up' in UK

Channel 4 in the UK today announced plans to offer a "catch up" service allowing viewers to download TV programs for 99p per episode, similar to Apple's iTunes Music Store which currently offers episodes of hit TV shows from various networks for $1.99 each in the U.S. The new service will feature popular TV series such as Hollyoaks and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, according to BBC News, and channel 4 said it has "signed contracts with nearly 100 independent production companies, including Endemol," and that it will offer selected films under the same terms at 1.99 each. The station plans to delete downloaded content from users' computers 48 hours after they first begin watching, however.

    Could it be...

    The first potential channel of iTS TV show for the UK? (please, please). TV shows in iPod video on the way to work.

    don't understand

    Why is it so many corporate people totally lose touch with reality? Why do they insist on trying to create structures where you pay for something that then self-destructs? Do they have so much money they forget we don't *all* have cash to throw away? If I *pay* for something, I want to *keep* it until *I'm* done with it.

    Too many episodes of Mission Impossible?
