Lionsgate Movies Added To iTunes
Apple announced in a joint statement with Lionsgate that more than 150 movies from the studio would be added to the iTunes store by the end of the month.
Were delighted to offer these incredibly popular Lionsgate films on iTunes, and look forward to adding even more films in the future, said Steve Beeks, president of Lionsgate. iTunes lets users download these wonderful films to watch on their computer, TV or iPod, so movie fans can take their favorite Lionsgate films with them anywhere.
iTunes customers will be able to purchase blockbuster Lionsgate films like Terminator 2, LA Story, Basic Instinct, The Blair Witch Project and Dirty Dancing and more than 150 titles coming to iTunes this month. Lionsgate joins Paramount and Disney, who just recently announced that it had sold over 1.3 million movies since it joined the store.
It appears that the release is limited to a portion of Lionsgate's catalog rather than new releases, similar to the current deal with Paramount.
