The iTunes Music Store is offering a "Season Pass" for each Stanley Cup Playoff series for $4.99. Each package includes 15-20 minutes of expanded highlights of each game in the Eastern or the Western Conference Finals or the Stanley Cup Final. For $1.99, fans can download expanded highlights of individual games. Videos downloaded from the iTunes Music Store can be viewed on a computer or iPod.This would be pretty cool if it weren't for the fact that you can get free highlights from NHL.com ("Video highlights are free!") or YouTube. Seems to me a better idea would have been not to charge for these. How is this going to attract new fans? Experienced fans already know where to get free highlights and prospective fans aren't going to want to pay to see them, however cheap they are. Update (11:31 AM): A reader over at TUAW points out the irony of the fact that these are not available in the Canadian iTMS, just the US version. That's real smart. I'd have thought the League wanted to make at least some money out of this.
