PBS shows now available on iTunes Store

PBS today announced that it is now offering select programming on Apple’s iTunes Store, enabling users to purchase and download documentary specials and episodes from popular PBS primetime and children’s programming. The primetime programming includes Antiques Roadshow, Nova, Now, and Scientific American Frontiers. PBS Kids shows include Arthur, Cyberchase, and Fetch. Episodes are priced from $1.99 each.

The NOVA shows are actually selling for $7.99 each, which is a price I haven’t seen before for a video on iTunes. (There are a few non-movie videos, including the Conan O’Brien 10th Anniversary TV show, that sell for $9.99.)

NOVA is a great show, but I see no reason for the higher pricing. As a “public” broadcast channel that already receives a portion of our tax dollars, shouldn’t the episodes be CHEAPER? (They’re not even losing ad revenue!)

Finally, there is no discount if you buy the entire season, which costs $39.95. (5 episodes * $7.99 each = $39.95)
