BBC content for iTunes

The BBC today confirmed earlier reports that it would distribute its televised content on the UK iTunes store, offering an initial selection of episodes from seven different series. The selection includes several episodes from the raunchy, but popular Doctor Who spinoff, Torchwood, and MI5 spy drama Spooks, as well as the offbeat crime series, Life On Mars. Most of the unveiled content goes for 1.89, with a few exceptions.

Content from Little Britain, The Catherine Tate Show, The Mighty Boosh, Little Britain, and Two Pints of Lager & a Packet of Crisps were also released. Other titles are expected to follow.

Neither Apple nor the BBC commented whether it would bring the content to international music stores.

    TV tax

    Don't UK residents pay some sort of TV tax which is supposed to make BBC content free for them?

    Maybe when all content available in the US is available in Britain, Canada, Australia, and every other country that iTMS exists?
