iTunes TV Shows now on Apple TV in Canada

It seems like we have TV shows now. Apparently they're purchases not rentals and will stream from iCloud.

Noticed this late last night when I couldn't sleep. Was going to browse some YouTube videos. I made a quick video of it on my iPhone:

This morning, there still isn't full functionality yet and you can't buy / rent TV shows yet. Is it working for anyone else?

I noticed that under networks, it lists 7 networks. Some pretty significant ones like A&E and PBS, but doesn't list any of the major ones like CTV, Global or NBC etc... I do notice that when you go to "Search" you can see a lot of major shows and that they show up as being from CTV etc... Funny, you can preview them, but the icon for the shows etc.. do not show up.

Reminds when the iTunes Store first opened in Canada, a lot of us were able to start poking around early, but things were still half-baked for a bit.

Do you see any options for buying Season passes or entire seasons?

No options for Seasons Passes yet. (Or any purchase options for that matter.)

Noticed that Family Guy says its from Global.

I'm interested to see if they'll have Seasons Passes, hopefully at a better price. I find $3.49 for a single episode of Family Guy way too high.

$3.49 for any show is too high...give me rental prices and I'd seriously start to question my cable ties but not at $3.49 a show.

Agreed - $3.49 is ridiculous! A full season of some shows would be over $75 at that rate...

The seasons pass rates are still insane at $50 a season.
