Macworld UK reports that iTunes UK will soon offer Sony-owned TV content, including Damages, The Larry Sanders Show, News Radio and animations, Jackie Chan Adventures and Spiderman.
The real news here is that these shows, like ones from NBC, are flexibly priced: Spiderman, News Radio and Jackie Chan Adventures episodes cost £1.19 each; while The Larry Sanders Show costs £1.49 per episode and Damages is tagged at £1.89 per show.
iTunes UK is also selling NBC shows with variable prices.
In the US, Apple broke the $1.99 price barrier when it began offering HBO shows variable price points.
Late last year NBC pulled its TV content from iTunes reportedly because Apple would not allow flexible pricing.
