Apple Computer and Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), a Time Warner company, on Tuesday announced the availability of TBS programming on the iTunes Music Store for $1.99 a download, including content from CNN, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, according to an Aug. 1 Apple release on Yahoo Finance.

Though CNN has been offering a handful of free podcasts via the Cupertino, Calif.-based firm’s multimedia download service, it will now offer episodes of its popular series, “CNN presents.”

Adult Swim also already offers content on iTunes, including free video podcasts, but now Web surfers will be able to purchase full-length cartoons including “Aqua Teen Hunger Force.”

Cartoon Network will offer episodes of “Johnny Bravo,” among other network favorites, according to the release.

“We’re delivering a variety of hit programming from three of our wildly popular networks, with shows for everyone of all ages,” said Dennis Quinn, TBS executive vice president of business development, in the release.

Apple’s iTunes Music Store currently offers for sale to its users upward of 9,000 music videos, short movies from animation favorites Disney and Pixar, more than 150 television shows and some 3 million songs, according to the release.
