3 Million ITunes Videos Sold in 2 Months


Maybe I don't watch enough TV or I'm biased against small screens, but I didn't think ITunes videos would have mass appeal. However a new report from Macworld says they sold 3 million videos.

Apple has sold over three million videos since October 12, the company confirmed today.

"Customers have purchased and downloaded more than three million videos since their debut on October 12, making the iTunes Music Store the world's most popular video download store," Apple said.

The news came in Apple's official announcement that it has added new NBC content to its video catalogue, available to US users at $1.99 per show.

iTunes now offers more than 300 episodes of 16 popular TV shows for viewing on a computer or iPod.

Now that NBC will offer videos to download as well I guess we should expect to see even more growth in 2006.

So would you ever download a TV show and watch it on your IPod?


Heck yeah

Last year, my wife and I missed one of the last handful of episodes of LOST. It's the only prime-time TV I watch, incredible show. I spent the better part of 3 weeks hunting it down - torrents, friends with TiVo, the whole nine yards. Never got it. I would've paid $10 to be able to download that episode before the next one aired.

I'd prefer

I'd prefer that apple made the ViPod properly so that I could just plug the bloody unit into the TV and record the shows I actually wanted to watch like the News, Coronation Street (in UK).

I have been looking at the gmini which enables this but the reviews still say that you have to jump through hoops to get the video on to the unit.

I suppose version 14 of the iPod will actually allow me to do what I really want to do with video. In the meantime I will keep buying multi-system DVD players and DVDs.
