BBC: But not for us



By

Yesterday, the web sprouted rumors that the BBC would soon offer TV shows via the iTunes Store. Of course, there was the possibility that it would be UK-only, but we were hopeful nevertheless.

Sadly, TUAW brings us new that BBC TV shows are indeed available via the iTunes Store UK only.

It turns out, perusing the iTunes Store this evening, that the BBC Worldwide content has already appeared. Shows initially showing up include Torchwood, Spooks, The Mighty Boosh, Life on Mars, The Catherine Tate Show, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and finally Little Britain. All the episodes cost the regular UK pricing of £1.89 and currently, there's just a selection of series available: Spooks (known in the US as MI:5) is showing just Series 6 currently.



There is the possibility that the BBC' quality content will eventually make it's way across the pond to the US iTunes Store.

Then again, the BBC already has a complex web of agreements—think PBS, PRI, etc—that may prevent digital distribution via iTunes...

What's your take?

Refurbished iPod nano, 4GB - available in silver, blue, green and pink, only $99!
