Bonjour mes braves. French Mac news website, MacGeneration, has the skinny – TV shows are on the way to iTunes Store France.
Why do they know? Because they’ve spotted that searching Apple’s digital media service for specific shows (Desperate Housewives, for example) yields results. DP (Desperate Housewives) series one costs €51.99 for the entire series of 24 episodes, while DP2 (23 shows) costs €49.99, so shows set you back €2.49 each ($3.89, £1.97). They’ve spotted more – South Park, Sponge Bob Square Pants and other US, erm, shows, are also mentioned (according to our fairly flawed French-reading abilities)…Vive La France, gens…
These things are difficult to achieve on account of rights clearance, so we don’t expect TV shows immediately in the event Apple should manage to roll out iTunes Store coverage globally when the iPhone launches worldwide. Though that last part’s pure speculation, of course.
