PBS series on iTunes

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 11th 2006 12:05PM

PBSPBS has made some of its programming available on iTunes, but instead of paying for the episodes, you simply call a number and pledge money to PBS, download the episode, and then receive a coffee mug or tote bag in the mail. No, I'm kidding, the episodes are the usual $1.99 downloads. The series include Nova (which has had a free vodcast on iTunes already), Scientific American Frontiers, Antiques Roadshow and Now. PBS is also offering a few animated children's programs in its iTunes store, including Arthur, Cyberchase and Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman. The Nova podcast will be a little more pricey at $7.99 per show, and I notice the short-form Nova vodcast hasn't had a new episode since last month, so maybe they're ditching that as well. I hope that isn't the case, since it was a great vodcast, even if it did only offer tiny snippets.

I'm surprised they haven't included Frontline as well.
