Apple FINALLY Releases Video iPod

Apple has finally had the news conference where they annouce the new video iPod. They also announced a partnership with ABC where they will sell episodes of hit tv shows, such as Desperate Housewives or Lost, the day after they are broadcast. They will sell them in the iTunes online store for $1.99 an episode, “It’s never been done before, where you could buy hit TV shows and buy them online the day after they’re shown,” said Jobs. From,

Videos will now be sold alongside songs on Apple’s iTunes Music Store.

The iTunes store will sell episodes of hit shows “Desperate Housewives” and “Lost” for $1.99 each online, making them available the day after they air on television, in a deal with ABC.

The new video iPod, available in black or white, will be able to play video and podcasts. A 30-gigabyte version will sell for $299 and a 60-gigabyte, $399. Extra features on both versions include a clock, a calendar that Jobs said never looked better, a stop watch and a screen lock.

With support for up to 150 hours of video and a 2.5-inch color display, the new iPod lets you take music videos and TV shows on the road.

Not sure if it is because they are busy, or something wrong on my end, but was not reachable when I typed this up. The iTunes website came up for me, but it was very slow. They are already advertising the fact that they will be selling the tv shows online, and have a nice big graphic for the new iPod on the front page. They would wait until after I bought my first iPod, dangit. Note: The site was flying by the time I finished typing this up.

The new video iPod


All that speculation that Apple Computer would unveil a video iPod at a press event Wednesday was right.

The company also rolled out a new iMac and a new version of iTunes, iTunes 6, just five weeks after the debut of iTunes 5.

The iPod has “been a huge hit for us, so it’s time to replace it,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs said as he showed off the new video-capable product at the San Jose, Calif, event. “Yes, it does video.”
