Apple Computer made it official Wednesday, announcing a deal with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group to offer classic TV hits on the iTunes download service.

The fare from Warner’s library will cost $1.99 an episode, giving fans access to episodes of “Friends,” “Babylon 5,” “The Jetsons” and “The Flintstones.”

The studio will also include the pilot episode for “Aquaman,” which has never been seen before, Warner Bros. said.

Apple’s latest deal is likely to mark a coming onslaught of deals the computer maker signs as it tries to protect its dominance in the video download market. More companies are preparing to enter the business, including online retailer Amazon, which is reported to be targeting an August launch for a similar service.
