iTunes US gets more TV content

PBS shows now available from $1.99 each

The PBS (Public Broadcasting System) has joined the growing list of television networks that makes its shows available for purchase and download through Apple's US iTunes store.

PBS has debuted seven series available for download through iTunes - its beloved children's animated series 'Arthur', 'Cyberchase', 'Fetch' with Ruff Ruffman, 'Antiques Roadshow', the esteemed science program 'Nova', the news show 'Now', hosted by David Brancaccio, and 'Scientific American Frontiers', hosted by Alan Alda.

Shows vary in price - most cost $1.99, as do most television programmes purchased through the iTunes store, with the ability to buy all episodes available for purchase as well. Nova, however, costs more - $7.99 per show.
