Apple Expands iTunes in the Cloud in Germany With Access to Movies and TV Shows

Apple today expanded iTunes in the Cloud in Germany, adding access to movies and television shows. As noted by German site iFun.de [Google Translation] German users are now able to download TV shows on their Apple TVs, as well as access previously purchased movie and television content on any of their Apple devices.

Prior to today's update, iTunes in the Cloud in Germany was limited to music, apps, and e-books, though German users were able to purchase movies via iTunes. Apple has also reportedly updated its terms of service in the country to reflect the new content offerings, but the iTunes in the Cloud support page and the country's Apple TV page have yet to be updated.

iTunes in the Cloud, which allows iTunes users to download previously purchased content, initially launched back in June of 2011 in the United States, with U.S. users receiving access to movies and TV shows in March of 2012. Apple has been working on expanding movie and television show coverage to additional countries since that time. Currently, a number of countries have iTunes in the Cloud access to movies, while television shows are limited to just five countries.

Apple last expanded iTunes in the Cloud back in August of 2013, adding movie support in Japan and seven other European countries, including Austria, Switzerland, and Italy.

Update 3:00PM PT: Apple has also expanded iTunes in the Cloud in Spain, adding access to movies.

Too bad I'm getting my iTunes content from other sources now.

Why would I buy „The Good Wife“ season 1-3 or „The Walking Dead“ season 1-3. It's 2014 for gods sake. If you want my money, at least give me the new stuff, with original sound and subtitles. Because that's what I get from seerobbers.

Finally!! Oh my god, I'm still so overwhelmed... :D I thought I got a heart attack when I saw the little notification on the upper right hand corner of my Mac from 9to5mac a couple of minutes ago, stating that Germany would gain iTunes in the Cloud support for TV shows and movies!

We have waited soooo long! And honestly, I didn't think that we would get the feature this year either.

I love you Apple!! :D

Aye, the prices are a joke...
Sometimes they are ok when they have stuff on sale, but more often than not the prices don't compare to physical media at all.
Also, I don't get multiple audio tracks and many other things that I get with physical media.
The ability to put something nice in a shelf aside...

iTunes Match for movies is what we truly need, much agreed.

So far, this is a very welcome move though.
