NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution’s entertainment newsmagazine “Access Hollywood” is making daily video podcasts available through the iTunes Music Store.

The podcasts will consist of “Access Hollywood” moments, extended interviews and more.

The “Access” announcement comes the same week CBS announced it will offer news alerts from CBS News and the syndicated strip “Entertainment Tonight” via mobile phones.

Subscribers will pay a monthly fee of 99 cents for “CBS News To Go” and $3.99 for “ET To Go.” Each service gives users up to five alerts daily and the option to read text and, if their mobile phone allows, see matching pictures and video. The alerts will be available for all mobile phone models and wireless carriers.
