HBO sells TV shows on iTunes for a dollar extra


HBO will sell episodes of such hit series as "The Sopranos," "Sex and the City" and "The Wire" on iTunes, in some cases for a dollar more than the usual $1.99.

In an unusual move, episodes of "The Sopranos," "Deadwood" and "Rome" will cost $2.99 each. "Sex and the City," "The Wire" and "Flight of the Conchords," meanwhile, will cost the regular $1.99 per episode.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has maintained in the past that a standard, fixed price -- such as 99 cents a song -- is easier on consumers than selling items at a range of prices. But HBO, whose television shows aren't readily available online -- unless you count file sharing services -- apparently broke the mold when it came to selling its TV series on iTunes.
