Doesn't Quebec have GST/HST? I get charged GST/HST for apps in iOS and Mac. But for music I don't.

Agreed. Apple is overcharging for TV shows and they are even worse on their electronic books. I fear they are becoming greedy corporate bas*****. $3.49 is highway robbery. If a song is worth 99c, a TV show originally free over the air isn't worth more than a quarter. Besides, I can watch TV on my Bell satellite (and record them) and get all the old shows I can handle on Netflix and Crackle.

You mean my cap of 100GB, not worried. And if you want some 3rd party providers have packages that have no limit.

If you have a 15GB limit like my girlfriend, well you can't do anything on it anyways. I have told her to upgrade to at least the next level which is 60GB and 4 times faster for $11 more per month

Right. We have GST + a PST that's itemized but in effect harmonized.

With apps, the taxes aren't included in the price shown in the app store (Mac or iOS).

With music, TV, movies the price shown includes taxes. So, again, agreed that $3.49 is really steep for a TV show, but it is the taxes-in price.

My first question is that to wonder if they make shows available based on when they air in the USA, or when they air in Canada?

I make an effort to watch maybe 4 shows regularly, and two of them air in the US several weeks before they air in Canada.

Answered my own question, I think: when they air in Canada. Never mind then, not for me.

No, that is more than what you pay for one month of cable. You can't get a full season of shows on one month of cable. But I hear you - if you watch more than six shows, it's too expensive.
