Why can’t we buy Corner Gas in the USA? It’s probably the best show on TV. Period.

I am quite confident that TV content will increase and diversify as weeks and months go by.  This is just the start people, there surely is more to come.  I’ve been wanting to see what this Corner Gas and Little Mosque is all about so will try it out.  When they get my Battlestar Galactica and others, it will be perfect for me.  At least they finally started.  I wonder if we’ll eventually get movies too?

I think this is all we will be getting, since nbc ,universal and other big names pulled thier content from itunes this december.Why could’nt they have started this earlier and given us good content, amazon unbox seems to have the best tv content .

its about time we finally get video content in the ITMS in Canada. For all the belly-achers complaining about differences in content between the US and Canada ITMS, stop deriding Apple and place the blame where it belongs, squarely on the shoulders of the CRTC ( content regulator;  Canadian FCC). Apple would have had to cleared thier content regulations which would explain the heavy canadian content compared to the American ITMS.
