According to male lifestyle website, Everything For The Man recent television episodes and seasons are now available to purchase in high definition.
“There’s a slight premium on HD – episode costs go from $2.99 to $3.49, or seasons of shows can jump up anywhere from $3 to $10 over the standard definition version, but given the wide selection and added load on Apple’s servers, that’s not too big a price to pay,” EFTM’s Nick Broughall said.
“Although comparing the prices for a [digital] season to DVD/blu-ray season prices is a whole different situation.”
Currently not all iTunes content is available in HD, but with the recent update it seems likely Apple will work backwards to upgrade all standard definition television episodes.
Popular TV shows such as Top Gear, Community and Breaking Bad have now been released in HD, with varying price increases. Top Gear is available at the same price as the standard definition version, while Breaking Bad Season 4 and Community Season 2 are $10 more expensive.
