The big news is, I have no news.
Sorry about that. But the issue has been discussed here in a few threads, so I wanted to open a post where the situation could be discussed and easily located when news actually comes available.
There is a rumor on the internet that there is some sort of impasse between Apple and NBC over fee structures. This is not true. There was a big blow-up between the two parties in 2007, and as far as I can tell the current story going around is simply the result of old news being recycled.
If I had to guess, I would say the delay probably has something to do with the premier date being moved forward two months. They may be arguing over how to sell 3.01 and 3.02 (as one episode or two). Or it may be a pure mistake.
I had the season pass last season, and for reasons that were never explained, Suburbs was five days late in coming available (I think one other episode was a day late too, but I don’t remember which). TV shows usually come available the day after they air. Movies and music are normally released on Tuesdays. So I’m thinking the most likely scenario is that Chuck will start showing up on iTunes some Tuesday in the near future. I just hope we don’t have to wait until March 2!
I will post an update here when news comes available.
