Apple's iTunes starts selling Fox TV shows
Tue May 9, 8:48 AM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes has started to sell episodes of shows from News Corp.'s Fox television network, the latest major U.S. TV network to reach a deal with Apple's Internet download service.

Shows including "24" and "Prison Break," as well as FX Network shows such as "The Shield," were available on the download service on Tuesday morning, at $1.99 per episode.

iTunes has also started to sell episodes of older series, such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Lost in Space."

The three other major networks, including Walt Disney's ABC, General Electric's NBC, and CBS Corp. already sell shows on iTunes. They also redistribute some programming via other means over the Internet, including their own Web sites.

Networks are pursuing the younger generation wherever members get their entertainment, which is more often on the go with devices such as the iPod from Apple. ITunes allows downloads for watching on the computer or on an iPod.

James Gianopulos, co-chairman of News Corp.'s Fox Filmed Entertainment, in December told the Reuters Media and Advertising Summit that Fox would be open to a deal with iTunes.
