Update: Chasing The Saturdays IS available to download legally from iTunes in the USA, as expected, but as of now its only available as a season pass for $25.99 in HD and $16.99 in SD. This is a single price for ALL the episodes in the series. So say if there are 10 episodes you would be paying just $2.70 an episode in HD. Due to the show being able to purchase legally, we will respect the group and as normal we won’t put show or music which are available to buy legally on the site. Episode 1 is currently FREE on iTunes. So make sure you grab this whilst it’s free! Obviously rate it high everyone, lots of 5 star ratings 🙂 Leave a top review too 🙂
As you are all aware Chasing The Saturdays premiered last night on E! in the US/Canada with Episode 2 airing tonight at 10pm.
People wondering if it will be on the site or not, the simple answer to that at this stage is that there is a link to the show (which isn’t working yet) on iTunes in the US and Canada. If the show is available to buy on iTunes then we won’t be putting it on the site. The girls need all the support they can get in America and if its available to buy (Which should be $1.99 in SD and $2.99 in HD) – plus a series link no doubt – then I would rather people bought the show. It might also suggest that it might be on sale in the UK in a couple of weeks too. Again if thats the case I’d rather people bought the show. I know those outside the US/Canada/UK are now screaming at me, but if I put up a link here to ‘What About Us’ and said download it here for FREE, well you all know what would happen. Let’s see what happens today before we make a final decision. Plus at the time of this post publishing I don’t have a copy of the show I can use anyway! If you’ve not seen the show, there is a recap here
The girls UK mouthpiece – The Daily Mail – has talked about the show. They are saying that US critics having given it a mixed response – I’m not going to post the article here as its well typical DM writing, but I wouldn’t worry what the critics have to say, the group aren’t trying to publicise themselves to them!
In must better news Heat are running a competition which flys you to LA to meet the girls (so they are going back then!) the competition doesn’t actually give the dates, so that might be difficult!
