Amazon's new Unbox service, which is a sort of video-only version of iTunes with TV shows and movies for download, has Avatar episodes for sale.

The price for TV shows is the same as iTunes, ($1.99) but the file size is much larger (around 460MB) and the picture looks at least near DVD quality.

Not all the Avatar episodes are up yet, but it could prove a better alternative to iTunes for people who'd rather download episodes than buy them on DVD.

Thank you! This just supports my theory that soon our televisions will have hard drives in them and we will store all our movies on them or smart cards...Well, it's more of a wish than a theory Wink

It could also be an excellent alternative for those of us outside the continental United States seeing as iTunes won't let us download them...of course Amazon might not let us either...I'll have to go and check it out...

*EDIT* Nope...US customers only...(insert annoyed curses here)

Can't you create an account for the U.S. version of the site and buy them that way?

My credit card billing address would still be outside the US...and if I sent a money order it would be an International Money Order with Australian postmarks and my cover would still be blown...

Looks like I'll have to invest in a multi-region DVD player and wait for Season Two to hit DVD...assuming they'll send the DVDs outside the US...
