Apple Does Variable Pricing on iTunes UK

There must be something in the water in Cupertino – Apple has agreed to variable pricing for a bunch more TV shows on iTunes in the UK, AfterDawn reports.

It has also struck a deal with Sony Pictures to add episodes of Damages, NewsRadio, The Larry Sanders Show, Spider-man and Jackie Chan Adventures to the UK iTunes catalog, with per-episode prices ranging from 1.19 pounds to 1.89 pounds.

So far, HBO is the only network that’s been able to get Apple to ditch the $1.99-per-episode edict in the US.
