Long-running daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives” will appear on the iTunes Store Tuesday morning, according to a Variety report. The soap will see standard pricing ($1.99) for individual episodes, but customers will be able to purchase a 20-episode pass for $9.99, bringing the average cost per episode down to $.50. Sony Pictures hopes that the move will not only provide revenue from sales of the show, but that placement on the service might also help boost sagging ratings by exposing new, younger viewers to the soap. The possibility of bonus scenes being included in the iTunes version of the show has been discussed, but no decision has been reached. The move will make ‘Days’ the most widely distributed daytime soap in the U.S., with episodes on broadcast, cable, and online.

Well said. This is gold for my girlfriend. She is on pins and needles, especially after finding out that Lucas forbid Sami to go anywhere near Stefano again. But why would EJ then say that Stefano wanted to offer Sami the possibility of a truce? Was it because Sami wrote to Lucas to tell him she wanted to see Stefano? Anyways, the point is that some people out there like this stuff. Like my girlfriend..

@unreal - I care because I buy tons of videos off iTunes and wonder sometimes at the choices of what makes it on iTunes vs what doesn’t.
@dapimple - better said. Very good response.

I concede both of your points, obviously it was just me.

Why would anyone pay if they could get it for free legally?
