iTunes + Comic Relief

Apple UK has updated its iTunes website with iTunes + Comic Relief in an effort to raise funds for the Comic Relief British charity organization tomorrow. The charity enables UK residents to purchase and download videos, celebrity playlists, audiobooks, and podcasts by Comic Relief comedians. "Red Nose Day is back with The Big One -- bigger and better than ever," says Apple on its iTunes website. "Now we've put the best of Comic Relief music and comedy all in one place -- on iTunes. Behold a treasure trove of exciting and exclusive content, including Comic Relief singles through the ages, music videos, podcasts, audiobooks and celebrity playlists." iTunes customers can offer their support by purchasing the official charity single 'Walk This Way.'

"This year there are two Comic Relief singles: 'Walk This Way' by Sugababes vs Girls Aloud, and a special surprise from Peter Kay, to be released during the Comic Relief TV show on March 16th."

Net profits from both singles go to Comic Relief, and playlists reveal what the Comic Relief celebrities listen to on their iPods or what influenced them as teenagers.
