Apple Gets Media Pwnage on New NBC, Amazon Deal

Shortly after its embarrassing Friday spat with Apple, NBC developed a similar relationship with Amazon TV.

One of the biggest points of the Apple/NBC disagreement was Apple's insistence that NBC wanted to raise its costs per episode to $4.99. NBC said this wasn't true, and the REAL issue was Apple's refusal to sell episodes in package sets.

Well, regardless of who you believed then, NBC put its money where its cavernous mouth is and developed a relationship with Amazon TV's Unbox. Episodes are still going for $1.99 ("Up yours, iTunes!") and customers who buy complete seasons get a 30 percent discount.

Nothing like a public mud-fight to get the blood pressure up. Think we can talk them into solving future disputes election '08 style?
