Apple adds two new NBC series to iTunes Store

image

Despite its previous announcement that it would not offer any of NBC’s fall lineup, Apple has added two new fall series, Chuck and Jouneyman, to the iTunes Store, as both individual episodes and season passes. A Season Pass for Chuck runs $39.99, while Journeyman eschews the Season Pass for a “Buy All Episodes” option. Gizmodo reports that the Season Pass has 13 episodes, which might indicate that the full season will be finished before the December contract deadline. [Thanks, Ivor]

For a price of 40/season that works out to be $3.08n (rounded) per episode… thanks but no thanks. I see Bit Torrent in my future

It’s worth noting that neither of these shows are NBC properties even though they’re on that network. Journeyman is a Twentieth Century Fox property and Chuck is a Warner Bros. property.

It looks like what’s on the store depends on the *studio*, not the network that broadcasts it. Hence Heroes, Season 2 (an NBC/Universal property) isn’t there while these two are.

So Battlestar Galactica Season 4 could be available on iTunes since it’s not produced by NBC/Universal. It’s produced by a company named R&D TV.

@aidler… “Battlestar Galactica” IS a property of NBC/Universal Television. Watch the show again… see who’s log shows up after R&D TV. There is a big difference between the Production company who produces it and the Studio who pays and owns the rights of distribution.

Michael is correct, it’s the studio who owns it that is important here. So unless a deal is made, I doubt you will see Galactica season 4 on iTunes.

And yes, “House” is the property of NBC Universal Television.

NBC and the studios are dumb dumb dumb.. if they don’t offer a viable way to get these, they’ll just force more people onto a Bittorrent Client

I’ll just record them on my EyeTV then and not worry about paying for them on iTunes or anywhere else…
