NBC Universal content now available on SanDisk's "Fanfare" NBC Universal continues to move away from iTunes, this time signing a deal with SanDisk to provide content for its new "Fanfare" service.
Fanfare will complement SanDisk's TakeTV video player which "allows consumers to play downloaded content on their television sets", almost exactly like how the AppleTV works.

SanDisk has said the content will be protected, so the consumer should expect some type of DRM but both companies said that there will be flexible pricing.

NBC Universal's shows, including hit shows from NBC, USA, Sci-Fi, and Bravo will all hit the service next month.

"SanDisk is taking a leadership position within the consumer electronics industry with its commitment to protecting content, which marks an important advance for television entertainment in the digital landscape,"
NBC Univerisal digital distribution chief JB Perrette said.

The other shoe fell. Its crammed with DRM (Digital Ripoff Management) and defective by design. Hopefully someone will learn how to rip the content from the grasp of DRM.

This is going to be their downfall.
