iTunes TV? Cheaper than Comcast; no commercials; sign me up

With the noise level rising over consumers possibly paying a fee for TV shows online, now comes a report that iTunes is considering an all-you-can eat $30-a-month TV service.

A new subscription service would turn iTunes into a pseudo cable and satellite TV operator — a company that charges monthly fees for traditional TV/cable networks. The difference is that iTunes service would be sans advertising. Shows would not be distributed via linear networks — but, as iTunes does now, by program.

Of course, the service is only as attractive as the breadth of content offered.
