Apple Celebrates 10 Years of iTunes Movies With $10 Movie Bundles

Apple has begun offering bundles of 10 films for $10 on iTunes, to celebrate 10 years of movies being available on the store (via The Verge).


For today only, titles from Warner Brothers, Universal, Paramount, Lionsgate, and Sony Pictures are available to U.S. customers for $9.99. The movies cover a range of genres, including titles like Pacific Rim, The Hangover, Twilight, No Country for Old Men, and The Hunger Games.

During Apple's "It's Showtime!" 2006 keynote – a whole year before the launch of the iPhone – Steve Jobs announced that films with "near-DVD image quality" would be available to download on the iTunes Movies store. On launch, only 75 films listed, all from Disney-owned studios. According to Apple's website, more than 85,000 feature-length movies are now available.

Yep. The US even gets this huge FREE concert from Apple every year! Oh wait, that's in London...

Well... at least we get that "Lucky Bag" thing here around the new year... What? Nope, I forgot, that's in Japan.

Apple does lots of promotions all over the world. Get over it.

It's funny isn't it.
Despite years of buying films on BETA and VHS, a few LazerDiscs, then a resonable collection of DVD's and a couple of BluRays.
After all this time I've come to realize, it's mostly been a waste of time as re-watching the same film multiple times is something I THOUGHT I would do, rather than actually do.

I like the IDEA of being able to watch my movies again and again, but reality did not match what I thought, and I stil have things I bought, sealed in plastic.

Having Amazon Prime and Netflix, AND whatever I can find on terrestrial TV or the internet in general, the concept of paying money to own a single title now feels crazy to me.
I see a film I've watched on Amazon for example, and that if I did not have a PRIME account it would cost me £8 UK Pounds to watch. Not in a million years would I do that now.

£1 would be more than enough to stream a single film just once for me to watch these days.

If you have children, then I can understand you wanting Disney/cartoon collections as they love to re-watch those, and it may just be me or my age!, but all this buying movies these days with so much out there, and especially digital ownership you can't even sell on or give away to friends or charity when you are done with it, just seems an old past alien concept.

Stream what you want, when you want, that seems to be the obvious thing.

Epic fail for the rest of us not living in the US, happy to have us Aussies fork out over a grand for basic iPhone7 but can't do us a deal on movies.
