Idiots 2 1/2 : $4.99

In Apple, iTunes/iPod on August 31, 2007 at 12:03 pm

Apple today announced that it will not be selling NBC television shows for the upcoming television season on its online iTunes Store. The move follows NBC’s decision to not renew its agreement with iTunes after Apple declined to pay more than double the wholesale price for each NBC TV episode, which would have resulted in the retail price to consumers increasing to $4.99 per episode from the current $1.99. ABC, CBS, FOX and The CW, along with more than 50 cable networks, are signed up to sell TV shows from their upcoming season on iTunes at $1.99 per episode.

I’m sorry but $4.99? Let’s say there’s 24 episodes in a season : That’s the immoral price of $119.76 per season compared to $47.76 at $1.99 per episode (although, for example, the 23-episodes-long season 3 of LOST goes for 34,99$ and the 23 episodes of HEROES – an NBC show – go for 42,99$).

That’s it! Screw Law & Order. Screw Chuck (Well… we’ll see for that one). No more NBC shows. No more Universal music. None of that until they stop acting like a bunch of greedy idiots. The only exception will be NBC Universal-produced shows on other networks or reruns. I don’t care how pissed I might be, I’m never going to give up watching House on FOX or Global.
