Is Big Finish Who on iTunes?

I'm trying to download the new Tom Baker stories... but I can't find them! In fact, I can't find any Big Finish Audio stories on iTunes, only some podcasts which I'm not interested in.

Am I being totally dumb and not looking properly, or can't I get hold of these stories through the App/iTunes stores?

Massive oversight if they are not on there....

... or maybe I am being dumb!

Its better for Big Finish if you buy direct from them, by offering them on iTunes cuts into the margins so they tend not to do it. I thought they did make some of the earlier (10 year old) stories availible on there though.

You can buy downloads direct from Big Finish, but I often buy cd's from Amazon as it's cheaper than getting stuff from Big Finish.

It annoys me that they charge UK fans more than US fans to buy their stuff.

But you can buy downloads straight from the big finish site. They often have sales now too.

Yea, that's what I do. I buy the Downloads from big Finish and burn themselves myself, since I prefer to keep my CDs in CD wallets, to take up less space then the store bought individual cases. Cheaper that way too, the releases before 2004 were only $7.99 for download (though the more recent releases were up to $12.99 for download, but, more expensive for the hard copy CD)

plus, your Big Finish account holds all your purchases to download at any time. For if your downloads get wiped (IE: Computer gets reformatted or you don't save a download copy and your CD gets damaged), you can always go to your Big Finish account and download again, anything that you purchased.

Also, Big Finish is on iTunes. A quick search brings up a bunch of early main range releases and Companion Chronicles. Though not the Fourth Doctor Adventures as far as I can see, and the price is better direct from BF.

My problem is, I have a 64gb iPhone - I never use iTunes or connect my phone to my PC in any way as I use iCloud... can I download Big Finish Audio's on my phone browser?!
