Now what does this mean? You are now able to rent episodes of Coronation Street for fifty cents apiece, and watch them on your computer (Mac or Windows), TiVo, Sony BRAVIA Internet Video Link, or Microsoft's Xbox 360. 

ITV is putting up two hundred episodes (from December 2007 to July 2008) to start things off and they will be adding an additional twenty episodes a month until episodes are within a week of their original UK airing.

It is understood that if there is a demand for such a move, all archived episodes from December 1960 (when the show premiered) may be made available in the same way.

Now that Coronation Street is legally available in the states will you be tuning in? And what do you think of this move, could this be the future of soaps?
