Netflix is on fire with their programming for many, many reasons, and not just for the programming that they have available. Their original shows, from House of Cards to Jessica Jones to Making A Murderer, have been capturing the attention of audiences like nothing else, and the people want more, more, more. Netflix true crime series Making A Murderer in particular has had people intently following the case of the murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach, by taking us inside the details of the case and the lives of the men who have been accused of the crime. Now, marathon watching the series on Netflix is the easiest way to get your amateur detective fix, but what about those people out there who don't have Netflix for one reason or another? Will Making A Murderer be on iTunes? That doesn't seem likely.
If you want to watch Making A Murderer on iTunes, you're definitely out of luck. The show isn't listed under available iTunes TV shows, and doesn't seem likely to be in the future. However, if you want to get a behind-the-scenes look at your current favorite show, then iTunes is a great resource. Apple sponsors a Making A Murderer podcast, a free, 25 minute inside look at the documentary that is described as follows:
Go behind the scenes with the creators of the groundbreaking new Netflix Documentary Series, Making A Murderer, to hear how they documented the harrowing true story of Steven Avery, an outsider who was exonerated after serving 18 years for a brutal assault. But, in the midst of his very public $36 million civil case against local law enforcement, he suddenly finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime. Making A Murderer takes viewers inside a high-stakes criminal case where reputation is everything and things are rarely as they appear. All episodes now streaming only on Netflix.
The podcast description really drives in the fact that the docuseries is only available to view on Netflix, but at least you can get additional information from iTunes that will make you feel like you have a leg up even on people who have Netflix to watch the actual series itself. (Unless they, too, have listened to the podcast, in which you're out of luck.) But, if you want to watch the series in full and comb over every detail with all of your friends, you're going to have to get your hands on a Netflix account, because there's no iTunes availability to be seen.
