Alliance Films in Canada? Say it ain't so

So. Alliance Films is the largest film distributor in Canada. 

And apparently, they've now inked a deal to sell and rent movies on the Canadian iTunes store. 

Which is, don't get me wrong, a good thing. Recent movies like Sex and The City, Journey to the Centre of the Earth 3D, Burn after Reading and The Women will now be available on iTunes in Canada, at least when they get released on DVD (from that list, only Sex and the City is out so far). 

But I'm *still* waiting for the TV shows to start coming to iTunes. The most recent addition? The Nature of Things. That's cool. But where's Battlestar Galactica? Babylon 5? Greatest American Hero? There's a lot of back catalogue on the American store that isn't available in Canada, and you think it would be. Sigh. A boy can dream, can't he?
