iTunes adds movies to UK store as well Just hours after it was announced for Canada, Apple has announced that it will be launching movie rentals and sales via iTunes in the UK.
The deal, exactly like that for Canada, has deals signed with 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., MGM, Sony Pictures and Lionsgate.

The UK store will only have 700 films available however, with 100 of those being available in HD.

"Were kicking off movies on the iTunes Store in the UK with over 700 films for purchase and rent",
said Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president of iTunes.

"We think customers in the UK are going to love being able to enjoy their favourite movies on their iPod, iPhone or on a widescreen TV with Apple TV."


Just like its American and Canadian counterparts, customers have 30 days after downloading to begin watching and then 48 hours to view as many times as they like. Catalog titles will cost 6.99, and 10.99 for new releases. Rentals are 2.49 for catalog titles, 3.49 for new releases and 4.49 for HD releases.
