iTMS Screenshot (2006-01-26)Every episode sold on iTMS is earning $1.44 each for their respective networks, with the other $0.55 going to Apple, according to the Hollywood Reporter. This is bad news for the traditional advertising-based model, because the networks are earning almost three times more from a purchase through the iTunes Music Store than what they earn from advertising revenue per user, which is an estimated 57 cents according to a JPMorgan Chase analyst.
