About a year ago, there was a fight between NBC and iTunes, resulting in NBC not renewing their contract with the online video/music download service.  Now things appear to have been mended, as NBC is returning to iTunes and an option to watch the shows in HD has been added.  The new deal was announced during the “Let’s Rock event, where Apple unveiled their newly updated iPods.  In addition to the NBC shows in HD, ABC, Showtime, USA and SCI FI are also including options to download their programming in HD.  HD episodes will run $2.99 per episode.
