    good move

    This is the kind of content that is perfect for Digital download. Movie studios should be putting all their out-of-print content on iTunes, and the same goes for music studios. The only content I ever downloaded without paying was content I could not buy anywhere.

    iTunes Video & TV Canada

    now if we could only get these in Canada.

    I don't understand this we can watch these TV show on out TVs in Canada but not from iTunes, is the CRTC holding this up? And if so why, they don't regulate DVDs so why would they as a digital download?
