CBS Backs Apple, Is Fine With $1.99 Pricing

We all know that NBC wants more money for their TV shows, that's one of the reasons that they are no longer selling them via iTunes. CBS, however, wants to "stay out of the battle."

It's good to hear that other stations are backing Apple on this one. This could have been one of those points where they all banded together and really tried to get Apple to raise their prices. I guess CBS actually wanted to sell shows this season.

I'm just wondering how many people would really pay $4.99 for a TV show? By the end of the season you'd already be paying more than the DVD set that will eventually come out. I guess we'll know the answer at the end of the season.
