MGM Sends 'Stargate' to iTunes21 Aug, 2006 By: John Latchem
Recent episodes of Sci Fi Channel series “Stargate SG-1” and spinoff “Stargate Atlantis” are available for purchase and download from the iTunes online music store.
The first five episodes of season 10 of “SG-1” and season three of “Atlantis” went live Aug. 21. According to MGM, new episodes will be posted within 24 hours of their initial airing.
The move represents MGM's first step in expanding its electronic distribution strategy since forming the New Media division in April.
The news comes on the heels of Sci Fi Channel announcing the 10th season of “SG-1” would be its last on the cable network.
