UK FlagWord from MacDailyNews is that NBC Universal is preparing to sell some of their TV shows in iTunes in the UK. They cite a report from C21 Media (paid reg. req.) that says that NBC Universal will test the market first with a handful of sci-fi series, which they feel will be popular with early adopters. The television series added would include Surface, Battlestar Galactica and Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

Obviously, this would be the first time that iTunes would launch television shows in a country other than the U.S. The UK was the best candidate for the first non-American nation to start receiving television series, as it is the oldest English-speaking store outside of the U.S.
