NBC fails to renew iTunes contract

A story in The New York Times today notes, that NBC will pulling its TV shows from iTunes, notes “But because NBC’s current deal lasts through December 2007, the shows will remain available on the iTunes store at least until then,” according to the piece. “Many media companies are unhappy with their deals with the iTunes store because they have so little control over the pricing of songs and videos, said the Times. NBC had wanted Apple to implement better piracy controls and allow it to bundle shows together to increase sales, said a person familiar with the matter, according to the report. Spokesmen for NBC Universal and Apple both declined to comment on the decision, said the report.”
