I agree. I could probably knock those all off in a month. Good way to spend $5.

From what I read, the Apple shows are likely being posted weekly with maybe a 2-3 episode initial drop. And there is a 1 month free trial.

You have to wait though. But the hardest thing to me is going to be finding the time. I already have an enormous backlog of stuff, unless these are just incredible, I can't see paying 5 bucks even for one month to prioritize them over the hundreds of hours of content I haven't watched that I'm already subscribed to.

I don't mind waiting till all episodes are available. I won't be facing the problem of running into spoilers like I would with traditional serialized TV shows such as GOT or the Walking Dead.

But I'm in the same boat as you, my backlog of shows to watch is pretty big. I'm not exactly yearning for more another service to pay for.

Her audience didn't follow her to Satellite Radio. The $50 million XM paid her was a boondoggle.

Zero interest in anything Apple has to offer thus far. Of course I can't stomach Jennifer Anuston or Reese Witherspoon, and oh lookie here's a two hour documentary on Workplace Harassment from Oprah. Take my money. Please.

Bought a new iPad this week. So I'll be getting this for free for 1 year when it launches.

I called in to Apple to get Support on my Ipad because it was glitching, and they gave me a free subscription to the service for inconvenience. Was pretty nice of them to do.

I wonder if they will ever distinguish between paid subscribers and gifted subscribers when they eventually give out the numbers. I highly doubt it. They either need to like really gear up the service in this first year or give out another free year somehow or there's going to be a steep decline when the promos run out.

Okay, THIS show has my attention. I may subscribe when this hits - in probably 2-3 years.
