Apple Holds Sale on Movie Collections in U.S. iTunes Store [Updated]

Apple is currently holding a sale on movie bundles in the U.S. iTunes Store, offering heavy discounts on collections of both SD and HD versions of films. The bundles include film collections of popular franchises such as the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Spider Man.

Last week, Apple launched movie support for iTunes in the Cloud in eight new countries, including Japan and Italy. The service was first launched for music in June 2011 in the United States, with movie and TV show support in March 2012.

Update: Pricing and availability on some of the bundles is changing rapidly, suggesting that some of the pricing deals may have been in error. The complete set of Harry Potter films was initially priced a $9.99, but is now carrying a $59.99 price tag. Similarly, the Lord of the Rings was originally also priced at $9.99 before briefly being removed from the promotion page and then returned with a $17.99 price tag.

I bought the back to the future trilogy in bluray for $18 last year. Way better than iTunes.

Harry Potter bundle keeps switching back and forth from $9.99 to $59.99 every time I click it. When I go to purchase it at $9.99 it says this item is being modified, please try again later.


See what happens when you click buy at $59.99. Please.

Well, I'm sorry some of you are in countries that have been left out, but for me the 10 dollars for all 8 Harry Potter movies in an insanely obvious choice.

Doesn't even matter that I own 3 on disk already.

I was able to get LOTR, Harry Potter, The Matrix, and Lethal Weapon for $10 each. Since I have a MacBook Air I don't have enough space to download them right now so I just chose later when it asked if I wanted to download the movies. They all show up in my purchased area. If the price on any of them was wrong do I still own them and can I download them to any of my devices or is there a way Apple can remove my ability to download them and refund what I paid?


I purchased Harry Potter and LOTR for $10 on my iphone this morning. Didnt download them. I choose later as you did. Just opened my ipad and they're in the purchased section and i was able to download and start the movies. At this point it appears that Apple will eat the cost of the wrong pricing and we'll have our movies.

One thing should be obvious to the studios from this. If you sale your wares at a reasonable price people will beat down your doors to buy. As a side benefit most likely piracy would decrease as well.

It's funny. These would sell more at the original sale price and they'd probably make the studios more money as a result. Instead they'd rather overprice them STILL and lose out on my money (and probably many others' as well.)

Their choice was $10 or $0 and they've chosen $0.

I saw this earlier and thought these prices were so low that it might have been an error. Too bad I own a few of these on iTunes already though. Great for people building up their digital collection.

But I mean, Jesus. The entire Harry Potter collection in HD for $9.99? Wow. :eek:

Great deals Apple. Hope to see more like this in the future :D

You're probably right.

However, I think Apple should periodically have a firesale type thing like this to boost iTunes usage


I agree. The logical person in me knows that I'll never watch the three Austin Powers films again, but the hoarder in me sees the bundle for $10 and thinks "Buy Buy BUY!"
