20th Century Fox Movies Now Included in iTunes in the Cloud

Alongside yesterday's massive international expansion of iTunes in the Cloud for movies, U.S. users also received some new content as 20th Century Fox films are now available through the service.

When iTunes in the Cloud for movies launched back in March, Universal and Fox were not included due to agreements the studios had in place with premium TV channel HBO, with sources indicating within days that negotiations were underway to lift those restrictions.

Universal's films began appearing in iTunes in the Cloud in early April, but it has taken until now for 20th Century Fox's offerings to also be included.

How much longer till there is no HD premium pricing? I feel at this point it's kind of ridiculous for a digital download. Movies should be one standard cost ($10) with old or discounted movies available ($5) and the user should be given the option each DL to choose SD, 720, or 1080 depending on what they want/need at the moment. And all movies purchased through iTunes or with digital copy should be able to be watched on any devices through download or streaming.

The ideal vision.

You are comparing two completely different services

I know. I compare one movie I can watch as often as I want for $9.99 to a service where I can watch - realistically speaking - hundrets for the same price. I know I don't have the same right on the movie if I watch it on Netflix since I didn't purchase it. But, hey, how often will one watch it? My DVD collection is collecting dust and in most cases, that is how it is. I understand that you can rent it for less, but then, the service is not much different from Netflix anymore. Comparing Bang for the Buck, $9.99 is too high for a single piece of media. I think $4.99 for a new one and $3.99 for an older movie is fair. Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree.

I can still get Blurays cheaper than iTunes. So, the only benefit is the convenience. For example, I just bought several movies in Bluray from Best Buy for $10 each. And to make it sweeter, Best Buy is running their DVD trade in program where I can take any old DVDs to them and they give me $5 off each bluray I buy. So, in effect, I bought 11 Blurays this month for $5 each ($10 - $5).

Some of these Blurays came with Blurays, DVD and Digital Copy! Sweet.

Yeah, buying it digital with fewer extras should *never* cost more than the physical copy. That's insane.

I am looking forward to being able to upgrade my SD movies to HD + iTunes Extras

Oh, and I see I was beaten to iTunes Match for Movies.

Ah but I can dream.
