    Days Of Our Lives no longer on iTunes

    Friday, September 28 2007


    Days no longer on iTunes. Are you affected by this? (NBC)
    Setside sources confirm that Apple Inc. recently announced a halt on selling NBC programs for this fall’s season on iTunes. This includes our favorite soap, Days. While NBC had no comment at the time of this article, Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president of iTunes says, "We are disappointed to see NBC leave iTunes because we would not agree to their dramatic price increase. We hope they will change their minds and offer their TV shows to the tens of millions of iTunes customers."

    Though this is blow to iTunes, since NBC's programming is said to account for some 40% of video downloads on the site, various other parties have already made deals with Apple, who refuses to change their pricing from $1.99 to NBC's suggestion of $4.99 an episode!

    What does this mean for Days fans? Simple. If you’ve been watching the show on iTunes, you will no longer have that pleasure. Sadly, it comes at a time when fans are already experiencing a letdown after NBC's Passions recent move to DirecTV and Canada’s Allarco Entertainment (Superchannel), but as with any business, it has to come down to the bottom line. As with anything, there is a silver lining. You’ll always have Days on television, on NBC and you can still catch our recaps here on Soaps.com!

    For all you itunes viewers, tell us how this will affect you. Please leave a message below!

    I'm sad to hear that DOOL wont be offered on itunes anymore. I've been watching DOOL since I was a in Jr. High. It used to come on right after school. Since then, I've been able to keep up by reading the soap magazines and until a few years ago, reading it on the net. I've purchased the multipass and have renewed it continuously. I don't get to watch DOOL during it's inital airtime because I'm at work, so I record it and watch it when I get home and I still purchase the episodes because I like to watch the episodes over again. I wanted to keep my collection so I can look back on the episodes in the future, kinda like home videos of friends and families. It was hoping NBC and itunes would have worked out a way to bring back past episodes as well. I believe DOOL is worth the 1.99/episode and even moreso with the multipass, but $4.99 is way too extreme.

    The correct DAYS OF OUR LIVES abbreviation is DAYS. All capital letters. And whenever someone is typing out the title, the o's in "of" and "our" is NOT capitalized.

    It's sad to hear this is happening, but it's not too surprising because I was a multi-pass user for Days on i-tunes and I was having tons of issues downloading the episodes. It would take 5 days sometimes before I would get an email that allowed me to download the episodes, which was terrible considering I'm seriously addicted. $4.99 is outrageous though. It only cost me 9.99 for 20 episodes, which was a way better deal and best for me because I have class all day and miss most episodes.
