    NBC Universal and Apple settled their differences so NBC Universal shows will be returning to the iTunes line-up. This includes Sci Fi Channel shows like Battlestar Galactica. The price will be $1.99 an episode as before. However, there will be high-definition versions of some shows that will list for $2.99 an episode. No word on whether HD versions of BSG will be available on iTunes.

    Personally, I find iTunes useful only as a stop-gap measure, if my DVR breaks down or fails to record the BSG episode properly. Otherwise, I rely on the Sci Fi Channel broadcasts, the DVR recordings and then the DVD sets when they are released much later.

    It is nice however for shows that weren't released on DVD, such as Season 2 of Jeremiah (season 1 was released, but not season 2) But yeah, I would not buy BSG on there because I just save the episodes on my DVR until the DVD is released.

    hulu.com has episodes to watch for free as well as scifi.com ... not that the $2/$3 dollars is a lot to pay...

    The HD versions might be interesting. I don't have an HD TV but a computer monitor generally has higher definition than a standard television set. Maybe I'll try out an HD episode of BSG if it's available.
