however i will never support itunes so if they put it another way i will pay but i want Tangible Goods
im not a tight arse i have spent $875 around their on SG-1 and SGA + the 3 movies
So if i want to watch SGU i have to find it my own way

@citac:
I also have to torrent sadly. Me and my sister usually buy all the merchandise at a later time anyway (We have all 15 seasons of SG-1 and SGA + the 2 SG-1 DVDs + the original Stargate movie)
