The new content features favorites such as the hugely popular sitcom “Friends,” sci-fi epic “Babylon 5” and some of the most popular sketches from “MADtv,” as well as animated classics including “The Jetsons” and “The Flintstones.” iTunes offers over 150 TV shows for $1.99 per episode for viewing on a computer or iPod.
