Open Letter to iTunes Store,
Listen iTunes, I don't want to be a cry-baby but when you pay 35 bucks for a specific program it should be at the verrrrrrrry least available to watch, in your current time zone, as it broadcasts. Scratch that, it should be available at or before EDT broadcast since we're paying for specific content.
It is the only show I pay for. I don't even pay for HBO shows, you dicks. I could get half a cable package for the cost of this single show. I thought Apple had this sort of shit figured out. I tried to do the right thing by not illegally downloading because I love this show and foolishly thought it mattered. Wanton illegal downloading continues due to this obvious contempt for your customer.
It should not take over an hour to download, even if it is in HD, whatever that means to someone watching on a laptop. Make that a download option, I can re-watch in HD on Monday evening or later, whenever I'm not after NEW CONTENT. I shouldn't have to stay up until 4 am to watch Mad Men on Monday morning and pay to do so.I have taken to watching shitty streams on the internet whenever possible to reclaim the 5 hours of my life/sleep. I am not into having a sado-masochistic relationship with my mp3 software. I feel abused by you every week. Never again iTunes. I am going to illegally download next season because you've taken such delight in stepping all over my dick. Fuck your mother.
Also the 'Inside Mad Men' breakdowns should not load before the entire episode. I don't need the episode recap before the actual episode. Are your people in Cupertino on drugs?
