SNL Nov 15, 1975
The content is not the problem, it is the sorry job iTunes has done with the video. It skips and drags and stops, sound goes then the video goes, etc. etc. This is the worst I have ever paid for. iTunes I WANT MY MONEY BACK! Seriously, if you like early SNL as I do I suggest you buy the DVD and get something you can watch.
Three second delay between audio and visual, has anyone else had this problem?
I purchase the 1st episode and the lips dont match the audio.
Great, but faulty video/audio...
It's about time this season was put onto iTunes, but in some of the episodes the sound is off from the video! What the hell iTunes? How about figuring out the episodes that are *messed up* and giving us who bought it another chance to download the *functional* version!!!
