"Law & Order"

NBC Universal is making 11 past and present television shows available for download through Apple Computer's iTunes.

The popular download service, which has sold more than 3 million video downloads ($1.99 each) since launching in October, now offers more than 300 episodes and 16 TV shows from NBC, USA Network, Sci-Fi Channel and ABC TV.

New programming available the day after it airs on TV includes episodes from “Law & Order,” “The Office,” “Surface,” “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” “Late Night With Conan O'Brien,” “Monk” and “Battlestar Galactica.” Classic TV programs include “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” “Dragnet,” “Adam-12” and “Knight Rider.”

ABC has offered “Lost,” “Desperate Housewives” and other shows on iTunes since October.

Last month, NBC signed a multi-year agreement with satellite provider DirecTV for access to episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” in addition to “The Office,” “Monk,” “Surface” and “Galactica.” The programs on DirecTV are available for 99 cents until the following week's episode airs. NBC Universal's movies and TV events also will be available through DirecTV Plus, and on pay-per-view (PPV).
