Why am I being ripped off by Apple???
Just wondered if you guys could explain something to me???
I really like the idea of owning a box set of a tv series (season if you're in the US!!) be it on physical DVD or on iTunes.
But what I want to know, is why is there such a huge difference in price between the US and the UK when it comes to items on iTunes?
For example I'm looking at say, buying the latest season of How I Met Your Mother, which on the US store, would cost me $29.99 (£18.21) but if I go to pick it up in the UK store it's a disgusting $74.69 (£45.36) and that's only in SD, in HD it would cost me $98.40 (£59.76).
The same goes for The Big Bang Theory.
Can anyone explain to me why it costs more than double what it costs in the US, and 3 times the cost of buying it on DVD?
It's sod's law, but it always seems to be some of my favourite shows on TV. I'd love to carry them round on my iPad and iPhone, but can't, because Apple / iTunes just seem to have messed up their pricing structure.
Also, where can I post this so I get a mail back from Steve with his explanation of it all??
