The Daily Show and Colbert Report in the iTunes Music Store

Filed under: General,Technology — Cory @ 5:25 pm

Apparently The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are now available through the iTunes Music Store. This is great news for me since I love these shows but I do not subscribe to cable television.

With all the content now available through iTunes, its becoming more tempting to get a Mac Mini for my living room. I have a Griffin radio SHARK so I can listen to and record KSYM and KSTX through the computer, and I can use my Airport Express to stream music to an iPod HiFi in my bedroom. And with the remote that comes with the Mini and the HiFi, I can control all of this from the couch or anywhere.

So tempting… :)

  1. If it were in a format without DRM, that worked on Linux, I’d buy it. Or even if it were just streaming, I probably would. But the format is a show-stopper. That’s why I buy my music from — it’s the right file format.

    BTW, I picked up a HD841 — they can be tweaked to get around DRM on DVD’s. Sweet.

  2. Good luck finding anyone other than a sketchy Russian company with a questionable business model to sell digital content that isn’t DRM’d. I agree that I would prefer these shows in an open format, but since I’m using only Apple anyway it isn’t a big deal.

  3. I prefer the resolution of the various bit torrents that are usually available . . . but that’s kind of hit-or-miss. I’m glad Apple’s having success with the video thing.

    Now if they’d just let me burn the damn shows to DVD, I’d be ecstatic.

  4. True, although streaming video is an option — like Google’s flash-based player with better video and sound synchronized better.

    Besides, allofmp3′s no more scetchy than any random American company. The found a legal loophole and they’re exploiting it for profit — what’s more American than that? :)
