MTV LogoiLounge is reporting that MTV‘s teen soap opera series Laguna Beach is available through the iTunes Music Store. This is despite the fact that no formal announcement has been made by either Apple or MTV, nor is the series being promoted within the TV shows section of the iTunes Music Store. Apparently, it was available only by utilizing the search feature, where it was available for preview and purchase. (I have been unable to duplicate this.)

However, since this has been spotted in the iTunes Music Store, it is probably safe to assume that an announcement of some sort will be forthcoming. There has been no prior mention of MTV seeking a content partnership with Apple. However, this raises some interesting potential content possibilities as MTV Networks also owns Nickelodeon, VH1, Comedy Central and Country Music Television.
