NBC has contracted U.S. Web to handle its Internet content, including nbc.com and episodic Web sites linked to NBC shows ``Homicide,'' ``The Pretender,'' and ``The Tonight Show.'' The four-year deal is worth $10 million and gives NBC the option to buy a 3.8% stake in U.S. Web. NBC becomes U.S. Web's fifth biggest account. U.S. Web and NBC executives said U.S. Web was chosen following a review. The other companies contending for the account weren't named. The relationship isn't exclusive in either direction.
