It’s a great time to stock up on your favorite TV shows before summer arrives — especially since iTunes is having another sale on video content this week.
Even in the age of streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu, there are some definite benefits to owning content on iTunes.
You can download that content to all of your devices for non-internet streaming (such as when camping or when flying). The shows will also never randomly expire or be removed.
So, whether you want to beat the heat and binge indoors this summer or you’re just looking for something to watch while you’re traveling by plane this season, here are some great deals on iTunes TV shows.
One of the biggest sales this week is the complete Mad Men series, which you can nab for just $19.99. The award-winning and historically accurate series usually retails for upwards of $70.
Another critically acclaimed show, Breaking Bad, is going for $30 for the complete “Deluxe Edition” series on iTunes — down from the typical price of $100.
You can also get every episode of How I Met Your Mother, Dexter, The O.C., The Office or Person of Interest for just $30 each. Those shows typically retail for much more than that (between $60 and $140).
If you have just $10 to spare, you can pick up a couple of Hulu original series like The Hot Zone or 11.22.63. The first is based on the Richard Preston thriller, while the latter is based on the Stephen King novel.
There are tons of other comedies and dramas available starting at only $4.99, so it’s worth taking a look on the iTunes app itself. Just navigate to the TV Shows pane and look for any banners advertising discounted shows and movies.
A Note About iTunes
iTunes is getting killed off in macOS Catalina, but your content won’t. Any TV show or movie purchased now in macOS Mojave will simply carry over to the new Apple TV app in macOS Catalina.
In other words, the fact that iTunes is going to be killed off won’t affect your existing or future library.
