    Thats still a high price considering that a normal tv show is 1.99$

    The price seems steep. I mean, chances are when I purchase something I'd like to watch it more than once, more than a 48 hour window can provide*.

    Apple's alternative is an option.. but that is it. Its an option, one that many people probably won't opt for.

    *Unless I'm doing absolutely nothing

    Some tv episodes are 99 cents. So probably not.

    I think a season pass rental thing would make alot of $$$ like $10 to watch each episode 2 times within a 2 weeks of its original air date.

    Well, that's something not to bother with

    Seems too expensive for me. I'll have to see what other people think.

    I'll pass...
    If it was 5$ a month I'd do it but not a dollar per episode
    That's insane

    Seems a bit cheap for Apple. I think Apple would introduce something like having to pay like $10 per minute.
