Hello, IBC program room

Apple on Wednesday announced it would sell individual episodes of several Canadian shows and a handful of U.S. series for $1.99 each, two years after it launched a similar service in the United States. Canadian shows available for download include Little Mosque on the Prairie, The Rick Mercer Report and Corner Gas, as well as complete NHL hockey games. (bold mine)

I was going to post this yesterday, but the Katz news blew that plan out of the water. This is good news for nerds like me. Well it will be, once they add more American programming. Right now, it's just a bunch of CTV and CBC shows (gross). Luckily for Mike W., Jian Ghomeshi has been available on iTunes for some time now.

This National Post story says that the store will put up, on average, one NHL game a week. I think that shows a lack of appreciation for the depths to which Canadians will go to get their hockey, and the amount they'll spend, but it ain't my call. Right now, the site is making available a few Stanley Cup Classics for $5.99, and a Sens/Predators game for $1.99.


Jian Ghomeshi turns 'Mr. Hand' into 'Mr. Fist'.
