Black Panther Comes to America via iTunes

After two years of patient waiting, American fans will finally get to see the Black Panther mini-series that has already debuted in Australia.

However, it won't be shown on BET, at least not yet. Instead, all six episodes will be available for digital download through outlets such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Zune, and iTunes tomorrow, June 23.

The series was supposed to debut in 2008 on Black Entertainment Television but was never officially put on the schedule. In my opinion, digital download is a better format for this series anyway, since the average person doesn't have a cable package that includes BET.

Shout! Factory will be releasing the entire series on DVD later this year.

UPDATE: The six episodes will be split in half for the digital releases. Each of the twelve episode run at about ten minutes. The Black Panther theme song is available on iTunes for FREE DOWNLOAD!

Marvel also said there are 12 episodes. How come?

It looks like the episodes are being split in half with a run time of about 10 minutes each. So the six episodes have now become twelve.
