Due to a glitch in the iTunes publishing system, the third episode of season 3 of the popular Mad Men television show was briefly available for download last night.
In an unrelated matter, it was revealed last week that the show is the first to go "Internet only" on iTunes in Canada.
AMC, the US network carrier of the show released the following statement:
The third episode of Mad Men’s new season was made available prematurely to some iTunes Season Pass holders for a short time late last night. We urge those who received this episode in error to please refrain from spoiling plot lines out of respect to other ‘Mad Men’ fans who are looking forward to watching the story unfold.
