iTunes Now Has HBO Programs

HBO & iTunes Logo
Apple Inc. is currently the fastest-growing market for purchasing music and now the digital music stores will now be selling HBO programs. Some of the shows that are appearing on iTunes already are The Wire, Sex and the City, The Wire, and Flight of the Conchords. Each episode can be downloaded for $1.99-$2.99.

Eddy Cue, VP of Apple iTunes said that HBO programs are some of the most requested series by customers. Personally I found myself addicted to the HBO shows, Entourage, Flight of the Conchords, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

This is the first time Apple has agreed to sell TV shows at different prices within the U.S. Apple iTunes was one of the first digital marketplaces to sell TV shows and then Google Video followed that idea. To see Steve Jobs’ reaction to Google’s idea copying, watch the ending portion of the video below (G4’s Attack of the Show): Bill Gates Runs Like A Girl.

    YouTube Robot allows you to search for videos using keywords or browse video by category, author, channel, language, tags, etc. When you find something noteworthy, you can preview the video right in YouTube Robot and then download it onto the hard disk drive. The speed, at which you will be downloading, is very high: up to 5 times faster than other software when you download a single file and up to 4 times faster when you download multiple files at a time.

    Manual download is not the only option with YouTube Robot. You may as well schedule the download and conversion tasks to be executed automatically, even when you are not around. Downloading is followed by conversion to the format of your choice and uploading videos to a mobile device (if needed). For example, you can plug in iPod, select the video, go to bed, and when you wake up next morning, your iPod will be ready to play new YouTube videos.
