NBC Posts Podcasts of News on iTunes
NBC said Monday that it plans to make two of its most popular news programs, "NBC Nightly News" and "Meet the Press," available for free via video podcasts on iTunes. Both shows would be published following their West coast airings. "NBC Nightly News" will appear on iTunes weeknights at 10pm ET, and "Meet The Press" at 1pm ET.
All three major networks have offered both video clips and audio podcasts through the iTunes service for some time, howeer this arrangement with NBC is the first of its kind. While both ABC and CBS have offered streaming versions of their national newscasts, neither allows for the programs to be downloaded.
