Big, bold Showcase originals now available on iTunes in Canada

Beginning today, television enthusiasts will have access to a collection of bold original content from Showcase for purchase and download on the  iTunes Store in Canada (www.itunes.ca), including fan favourites Trailer Park Boys, Kenny vs. Spenny and the gaming comedy Pure Pwnage.

The content on iTunes complements the array of digital platforms currently available for Showcase’s original Canadian series. In addition to the channel’s website Showcase.ca, iTunes provides another opportunity for viewers to catch up on missed episodes, purchase broadcast episodes, pre-order upcoming episodes, download entire seasons of their favourite series, and access exclusive free content.

“Making programs available on iTunes is an extremely important step for Showcase, allowing us to extend our wealth of much-loved, high-quality original series to an even broader audience who wish to access this content on their own terms,” says Paul Burns, VP, Digital Media, Canwest Broadcasting. “We always strive to find new ways to engage Canadian viewers through multiple platforms and availability on iTunes is an exciting move forward in that direction.”

Showcase series are available for purchase in both Standard Definition and High Definition, and iTunes customers can purchase a Season Pass, which allows fans to buy an entire season of currently airing programming at a discounted price. With a Season Pass, episodes are automatically downloaded when they become available the day after television broadcast.

As of today, iTunes customers in Canada can start enjoying a variety of award-winning, critically-acclaimed dramatic and comedic Showcase originals, including:
