Mix: Scrubs, Death Cab, Amazon.com, TomKat

The addition of Scrubs to the iTunes Music Store meant that NBC and ABC had to team up for an online first. Reuters reports: “While TV series for network broadcast are routinely produced by and licensed from studios of competing media companies, the ‘Scrubs’ deal marks the first such partnership for a prime-time program offered via the Internet for commercial download.”

The iTunes Music Store is now selling a video album version of Death Cab for Cutie’s latest album. “Each video has been created by a different director, each with his or her own unique vision of a song from Plans,” reads a description. “The outcome is an innovative and exciting combination of visual art and music, and it’s only available on iTunes.”

Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post said he expects Amazon.com to launch its digital music service, and possibly its movie service, by the end of this year. Digital music seems to be the company’s “most pressing need,” Post said yesterday.

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has reportedly given his actress girlfriend Katie Holmes an iPod to help her stay silent during childbirth, which is a Scientology recommendation.

Doesn’t Law & Order qualify as the first “prime-time [NBC] program offered via the Internet for commercial download”?  Am I missing something?  Is this just publicity hype?
