ABC rolls out online rentals

While it added a handful of shows to iTunes recently, the ABC has a much wider selection of programming available on its ABC Shop Download site, which launched today. $2.95 gets you a seven day rental on a whole bunch of titles (there’s 250 hours of programming on offer), and there’s a handful of free taster episodes available as well. For now, the service is Windows-only, though ABC executives have said Macs will be supported in a future release.  [ABC Shop Download]


  • Navigation of titles is seriously difficult and Silverlight is the required player!? Also a browser restart is required after install. Silverlight, why Microsoft?
