. . . TV shows and movies?

I don't think it'll hurt Universal as much as Apple. If Universal parts with Apple, Apple loses any revenue they would have made from people buying music under them: a crippling third of their content. However, if people want music put out under Universal, they can just get it somewhere else. Sure Universal will lose some sales by not being a part of a major distribution channel like iTunes, but iTunes is just that, a distribution channel. Like buying a loaf of bread from any supermarket, there are plenty of other channels people can go through. Even Jobs said they've only sold 25 tracks per iPod, so people must be getting a lot of their content from other channels.
