Warner Bros flogs Nikita on iTunes
One way to beat the Torrents?
Warner Brothers is making three TV shows available in the UK, putting them up on iTunes one day after each show airs in the USS. Nikita, The Vampire Diaries: Season Two hits iTunes UK every Friday and Gossip Girl: Season 4 lands on Tuesdays.
The shows cost £2.49 a pop and you can buy season passes for Vampire and Gossip for £34.99 each.
Let's be realistic this won't stop people getting their US TV fix from the torrents, or using a US proxy to watch stuff on Hulu. However, the Warner move removes one plank in a common freetard defence..."I am only doing this because it is not available and I must see this now".
British viewers who prefer to watch their TV on, well, TV, can see Vampire Diaries on ITV2 in October, and Gossip Girl on ITV2 in September and cable and satellite subscribers can see Nikita on Living.
