iTunes to Continue to Offer NBC (Comcast) Downloadable Content

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Apple News" @ 07:00 PM

"Comcast agreed to continue licensing of NBC content to online video services like Apple's iTunes in order to receive government approval of its acquisition of broadcast network NBC."

Owning both the content and a primary delivery mechanism, Comcast has agreed to continue providing NBC programs to the iTunes Store. Obviously being scrutinized by the regulatory folks has had an impact, but, now a user can cancel their Comcast account, and still buy and watch NBC content via iTunes, and, pay Comcast indirectly. Seems like a win-win for Comcast, but, alas, they're still holding-out on providing streaming content for Apple TV 2.

"Premium Games" Section in the Works

"Apple is planning to introduce a premium games section to its App Store where it will sell a range of iPhone games for $19.99, sources tell PocketGamer.biz. However, the initiative will only be open to a restricted number of large publishers, rather than the thousands of smaller developers currently selling their titles on the main App Store. The rumour has been buzzing for a few months now - we even included it in our predictions for 2009 feature - but our sources suggest that it's now actually happening."

Whether or not Apple creates a separate store for "Premium Games," developers who develop such titles are still going to have to compete against lower-priced apps and games. Sometimes I wonder if these developers spend as much time on their apps as they do whinging about the pricing thereof. Anyway, this "innovation" is probably coming soon, so be prepared to spend $20 for your next Bejeweled clone. Personally, I have a bad feeling that the recently announced Peggle for the iPhone is going to be one of the first "Premium" titles just because Popcap knows that the demand will push people to pay pretty much whatever they charge for it. That, dear readers, would be sad.
