Or they spent $4,460.544 on iTunes
Music, maybe, television, not so much...
144 GB / 1.45 GB = 99 HD Shows = $299 (2.99 per)
144 GB / 640 MB = 230 SD Shows = $458 (1.99 per)
The above numbers are averages and estimates, with loose math, and do not include any season purchase discounts which would lower your cost while still yielding the same transfer.
That said, this is probably not the OP issue.
