While $ 200 million may seem like a steep price tag, I’ll remind you how ruthless the broadcast wars have become of late. Everybody wants a slice of the next big thing, and if Apple hadn’t opened its coffers as much as it did, someone else would have taken over. Argyll until lickety-split. It is the price of doing business for a project that is ready to go and one full of stars. Pony up, Apple!
