UK iTunes gets TV Shows - at last a reason to buy an AppleTV

Well, well, well, here in the UK we finally get an excuse to purchase an AppleTV. The good guys at Apple HQ have finally given us some TV shows. This is great news, as here in the UK we have waited a long time for this type of content. There is not a lot of British made content, maybe this will follow. Apple should really be working with the likes of the BBC (sans Mac iPlayer) to bring some true classics to the iTunes Store.

Shows include;

  • Night Stalker
  • Drake and Josh
  • That's So Raven
  • Pimp My Ride
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Laguna Beach
  • Jongleurs Unleashed
  • South Park
  • Lost
  • Ugly Betty
  • Desperate Housewives
  • Kim Possible
  • SpongeBob SquarePants
Still a way behind our US cousins, but this is a great start.
