From the various Holmes Facebook pages (emphasis added):
Happy Saturday! We're happy to announce that Holmes on Homes Season 6 & 7 and our Holmes in New Orleans special are now available on iTunes in Canada. We were hoping for a simultaneous launch in the USA - but have run into some unforeseen FCC hurdles. We are working with iTunes and hope to have the episodes available in the USA in the near future. We will keep you all posted! Thanks for your support!Now, the reason I'm going to say that this was NOT because of anything I wrote is because this above was the right thing to do and the right thing to say. Any reasonable fan would say this sucks, damn FCC, can't wait for it to come out in the US and move on. I'm going to give the Holmes Group the full benefit of the doubt that this was the way they were going to handle this situation from the beginning, and that they were just a little late out the starting gate. So...minus 1 for being late, but bonus for finally making this announcement to your US fans.
iTunesgate is officially over, and the Holmes Spot blog has called off further investigation into the matter. (LOL)
