Currently, shows from ABC Studios, ARTE, Dargaud TV, Dupuis TV, France 2, MTV, and TF1 Vision are available, with pricing ranging from 1.49€ to 2.49€.

Update: Apple has made an official announcement regarding the TV programming, revealing that pricing varies between 1.49€ and 2.49€ an episode, and that programming from the Disney Channel will be coming soon to the French iTunes Store.

“iTunes is the number one digital music store in France and we’re off to a great start with TV shows,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “We’re thrilled to launch with over 25 programs and 450 episodes available on the iTunes Store in France.”

Finally TV shows on French iTunes…but, unfortunately ONLY the dubbed versions.  Please Apple, give us access to V.O. versions!

This was promised to us Europeans a long time ago, Apple is so late delivering in Europe :(

I love Apple but this is just too slow, I bought my Apple TV one year ago with the promise that TV-shows and movies would arrive fast and today here in Belgium I still cannot use it for it’s full purpose. Apple you suck sometimes for us Europeans, sorry to say.
