“The Sopranos,” “Sex and the City,” “Rome” and other HBO programs are now available on Apple's iTunes, the companies announced May 13.
The news comes less than two weeks after Apple and the studios said all new feature film releases would be available for $14.99 each day-and-date with the DVD release.
HBO's catalog series are being priced for $1.99 per episode for “The Wire,” “The Flight of the Conchords,” and “Sex and the City.” “The Sopranos,” “Deadwood,” and “Rome” episodes are going for $2.99 each. Customers can also purchase entire seasons.
“We're very excited to make these legendary HBO programs available on the iTunes Store,” said HBO Video president Henry McGee. “Whether catching up on ‘Sex and the City' in anticipation of its upcoming movie release or reliving a favorite ‘Sopranos' episode, we think viewers will love being able to watch these shows on their iPod or iPhone.”
Eddy Cue, Apple's VP of iTunes, said: “We're thrilled to bring this incredible lineup of programming from HBO to the iTunes Store. These are some of the most talked about television shows ever, as well as some of the most requested by our customers.”
