Jon Stewart expresses his feelings regarding Crash receiving the best picture Oscar.
March 9, 2006 -- Apple Computer Inc., maker of iPod music players, created a monthly download option on iTunes for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" from the Comedy Central cable television network.
The new Multi-Pass feature lets iTunes customers buy 16 episodes for $9.99 a month, Viacom Inc.'s Comedy Central unit said yesterday in a statement. The Multi-Pass option works only with those two series, Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said.
Apple's iTunes online store added video content in October after Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs introduced a version of the iPod that plays videos as well as music. Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple said last month that it has sold more than 15 million videos, at $1.99 each, since adding TV shows, music videos and short films from Pixar and Walt Disney Co. to iTunes.
"It's the immediacy of the iTunes service that makes it perfect for these shows," Michele Ganeless, executive vice president and general manager of Comedy Central, said in an interview.
