Amazon begins selling TV episodes for 99 cents Amazon has begun selling TV episodes for 99 cents a piece, just hours after Apple announced that they would begin offering 99 cent rentals on recently aired shows.
Disney and Fox shows, such as "Glee," "Lost" and "Bones" are now available via Amazon Video On Demand for 99 cents.

When you purchase the episodes, they are yours to keep. You can download them and they never expire. You can also stream them indefinitely.

Shows from other broadcasters, such as AMC, still cost $1.99, however.

The ability to download is only available on Windows PCs and TiVO HD boxes, but you can stream the shows on Macs, HDTVs, Roku boxes and more.

Seems like a great deal to me. Once they have what I want.

Netflix still sounds like a better idea. I watch a lot of TV shows when I have available time, and catching up on past seasons of shows is great for me. As far as current shows, DVR baby.

Sometimes Amazon is cheaper than Itunes for full seasons.
