News Corp.‘s Murdoch not impressed by video iPod, iTunes

News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch said in a recent interview with Newsweek that he’s not impressed with the video iPod and that Apple’s agreements with networks like NBC and ABC are not ground-breaking.

“We’re not knocked out by iPod so far,” he said, adding that News Corp. has had talks with Apple, Google and others. “But how many people really want to get video on a tiny screen when they already have TiVo or a similar service from their cable company or DirecTV? How many will want to pay $1.99 on Monday morning if they missed ‘Desperate Housewives’ the night before? What’s been announced so far with iPod and Disney and NBC is very small-time at the moment.”
