Buy TV shows from iTunes in Canada starting this week

While iTunes is hardly the only game in town anymore for those of us who like to buy our TV shows a la carte and carry them around on portable media devices, Apple is still one of the bigger names in video downloads. But so far, you've only been able to buy $1.99 TV episodes from iTunes if you live the US or UK.
Now it looks like Apple is about to open up the iTunes TV store to a country that doesn't have the word "united" anywhere in its name. Starting this week Canadians will be able to buy episodes or complete seasons of a limited number of TV shows.
For now, it looks like content will include a handful of shows from the CBC, CTV, and some US network programs as well as NHL hockey games. Because we know how much people love to wait a day or two until after a sporting event so they can download it and watch them on the way to work after reading the scores in the morning paper.
