NBC pulls TV shows from iTunes Store

Updated

As expected, NBC Universal has pulled its lineup of TV shows from the iTunes Store, including popular offerings such as The Office and Scrubs. In August, NBC announced that it would not renew its contract with Apple to sell its television shows on the iTunes Store; the contract expired over the weekend. Some shows airing on NBC but produced by other studios remain, such as Chuck, which is produced by Warner Bros. According to Apple, NBC provided iTunes with three of its ten top-selling shows last season, accounting for 30 percent of iTunes TV show sales.
