iTunes hbo-2.pngRumor had it that HBO shows would be appearing at the iTunes store soon. This was yesterday and now today, sure enough, HBO has made it’s grand entrance. The official Press Release from Apple explains that programs like The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Deadwood, and Rome, Flight of the Conchords and The Wire. The interesting part about this whole thing is that Apple must have decided to ease up on their price restrictions because different HBO shows cost different prices.

Typically shows are priced at $1.99 per episode, but certain HBO shows are priced at $2.99 per episode.

  • The Sopranos – $2.99
  • Deadwood – $2.99
  • Rome – $2.99
  • The Wire – $1.99
  • Sex and The City – $1.99
  • Flight of the Conchords – $1.99

Now it leaves us wondering what other HBO shows will be added to the list and if other television networks will be interested in putting their shows on iTunes knowing they may have some flexibility in the pricing?

Thanks for the tip Omar!
