I was happy to see some of the US networks showing up in the Canadian iTunes Store. However the price went up to $2.49 for single episode and $49.99 for a season of House for SD and $3.49 - $69.99 for HD. This is a substantial increase even if you applied the current exchange rate to the same show in the US Store.

Not sure who's the greedy ones here, Apple or the networks, but I can't see this pricing doing any good against TV show piracy.

I still get my TV Shows by questionable means. I would be happy to pay a reasonable price without being gouged. In my opinion most TV Shows are not keepers, I would prefer to pay a monthly fee to "rent" my favorite shows. But I some how feel the networks will never allow this.

I wonder if they will make Hulu available some time soon in Canada, implement it into the ATV too and that would make me happy.

Canadians cannot get Hulu. The broadcasting/distribution companies for both movies and TV shows are the ones causing most of the problems. That is one of the reasons why it took so long for the iTunes Store to finally open up a video option to Canada and why Sony still hasn't opened up their PSN video store to Canada.
