Fox parent News Corp. to stay on iTunes


News Corp. president and COO Peter Chernin has stated that the company will not follow NBC Universal and remove its television shows from iTunes. Chernin said that while his company was not in a dispute with Apple, it would like a more say in the pricing of its programs. “Right now we have a perfectly good relationship with Apple,” Chernin said in an interview. “But let me say this, we’re the ones who should determine what the fair price for our product is, not Apple.” Chernin also said that it was staying with iTunes because of the difference in advertising-supported realtime streaming and Apple’s paid downloads; News Corp. is NBC Universal’s partner on the upcoming Hulu video streaming venture.
