Apple has made US TV shows including Lost, Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy available to UK users of its iTunes download store.
Apple is charging £1.89 (E2.79) per episode through iTunes UK after signing deals with US TV studios including ABC, Disney Channel, MTV, Nickelodeon and Paramount Comedy. Unlike the BBC and Channel 4’s online offerings, any content bought via iTunes can be kept.
The shows can be viewed on a PC or Mac, through an iPod or on television using the Apple TV set-top box. It is expected that they will also be available on Apple’s iPhone when it launches later this year.
