NBC shows now available from iTunes Music StoreNBC President Jeff Zucker says more NBC shows will soon be available via iTunes.

The NBC deal expands Apple's TV offering to 300 episodes of 16 different series and Zucker said that number will expand quickly as NBC Uni fills the iTunes pipe with new shows.

"You are going to see a series of announcements in the coming weeks," he said.

Variety says NBC was motivated by the growth of illegal downloads -- the network estimates that there are 430,000 illegal downloads of "Battlestar Galactica" each week.

Update: As you can see in this new TV commercial, NBC plans to add SNL sketches and "the best of Bravo" to its iTunes lineup.
