Engadget notes that both The Financial Times and Business Week are reporting signs of renewed mutual respect between NBC and iTunes, from recent public comments by Apple's Steve Jobs and NBC-Universal's Jeff Zucker.
Could a reunion between the iTunes Store, and NBCU's television products (including BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), be not far behind?
As Engadget puts it:
No telling what has caused the turnabout. Perhaps the writers strike gave both parties time to reflect on their mounting lost revenue. Or maybe it's residual goodwill on the heels of Universal inking an iTunes rental deal. Whatever the case, it will be good to see NBC's content return to iTunes whenever the strike might end.
Cross your fingers, fandom.
