MLB pulls podcasts from iTunes Store

Major League Baseball has pulled its podcasts from the iTunes Store following a spat with Apple over presentation of the content. The league reportedly asked Apple last week to remove the podcasts because of a lack of control the league said it had over how its podcasts were promoted on iTunes. A league representative said Apple declined to give MLB podcasts better visibility on the site after the league asked for it. “Although the loss of the league’s podcasts—which included primarily audio recaps of games—is unlikely to have a financial impact on Apple, it shows the unease some providers of digital content have with Apple’s growing clout in digital media,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
