Apple Selling NBC Shows Anyway

iPhone3.jpgApple is currently selling new episodes of NBC’s Chuck and Journeyman, despite their earlier well-publicized announcement to immediately withdraw all NBC shows from the iTunes Store.

All is not quite as it appears, though. According to CNET News, the reason that Journeyman and Chuck are showing up is that “both shows are produced by companies other than NBC, and Apple is under contract to offer them.”

Meanwhile, the post reports that Heroes, which really is an NBC show (actually Universal Media Studios, NBC’s TV production group), isn’t available in the iTunes Store.
