They're selection isn't a whole lot different then iTunes, if anything its a lot less. The Star Trek stuff is a big catch though.

I was thinking about this the other day, if 1. I wasn't getting regular cable at a basic cable price (shhhh!) and 2. if it wasn't for the ability to randomly surf TV when bored silly, it would actually be cheaper to drop cable and download my favorite shows off iTunes at $2 a pop. Luckily, I can watch the Patriots without cable.
