NBC News is now on your iPod with a collection of unique documentary and long-form programming.

America's No. 1 news organization is now the first to offer video news and documentary programming for purchase and download from the iTunes Music Store. This includes some of the best news and documentary programs and great television moments from NBC News past and present, as well as new programs produced especially for iTunes.

Dozens of NBC News programs are available, with more to come. Programming will be priced at $1.99 per download and includes a wide selection of current and historical programming from NBC News, CNBC and MSNBC.

NBC News is showcasing some unique "Time Capsule" programs, including Jacqueline Kennedy’s White House tour, televised in 1962; an in-depth 1987 interview with the band U2, offered in its entirety for the first time; and a rare and long-unseen 1957 interview with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Also available are two new specials hosted by “NBC Nightly News” anchor and Managing Editor Brian Williams: "In His Own Words" programs on both John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon, featuring rare and exclusive interviews from the NBC News Archives.

Other highlights from NBC News on iTunes include Williams' first-person account of covering Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" reports — three programs that served as companions to his best-selling books, and "Meet the Press" moderator Tim Russert's "Meet the Presidents" series: complete episodes of "Meet the Press," available for the first time and including special new introductions from Russert.

Also included is a special series of Dateline "Crime and Punishment" programs, as well as episodes of MSNBC’s "Lockup" and "Caught on Tape" series. CNBC offerings include "The Age of Wal-Mart" and episodes of Jim Cramer’s "Mad Money" program.

NBC News programming has already found a successful home on iTunes with its many podcasts. Over the past 11 months, an average of 500,000 customers per month have downloaded NBC News audio podcasts, a number that continues to increase each month. This newest video offering at iTunes continues NBC News' leadership in digital media. NBC News content is featured prominently on its joint venture Web site MSNBC.COM and MSNBC.COM MOBILE, on the industry-leading NBC Mobile service and on NBC News Radio.
