MacWorld is reporting that they ARE available in HD, for one pound extra.




Olly Richards -> RE: (4/6/2008 5:41:58 PM)

Yes, that is correct. Our original information on this was wrong, so I've updated the story.

Wont be buying any films from Apple as assume it will have same playback limitations as their MP3s. Rather get stuff from sites like Lovefilm.com. Their downloads are cheaper in many cases as well (though a bit limited at the mo).

Meh. Don't want nasty DRM files on my computer.




boredbluekoala -> What is is with Universal? (5/6/2008 1:08:34 AM)

The tards at Universal are ALWAYS late to the party, they were the last ones to get on board with that new dvd thingy, then they balked at Blu-ray prefering the now defuct HD-DVD, now they aint doin the download thing with Apple? What's next, are they gonna set fire to their own studio?




jonogage -> (5/6/2008 8:50:34 AM)

dvds are cheaper so its still pointless




bruised_blood -> £10.99??? (5/6/2008 9:34:15 AM)

far Far FAR too expensive. If the studios really want people to stop downloading then they need to start offering legal downloads at more reasonable prices. These are most definitely not reasonable. DRM restricted low-quality movies for largely the same price as a DVD.

No thank you.




bruised_blood -> also... (5/6/2008 9:49:43 AM)

what a surprise.... we're paying way more than our American counterparts. $14.99 for a new film over there. That's £7.66p to you and I. Thanks Apple.




novakid -> Talking of late to the party . . . (5/6/2008 10:52:11 AM)

I'm a UK resident and have been enjoying Apple's facility via the US website using a well known work around. The best thing is the rental service - you actually might use this, although to date I've only watched "The Assassination of Jessie James" in HD.
The download is quick and the quality great 720p on my 43" Pioneer - the main bonus though is the 5.1 sound which packs a punch and is crystal. However, being a disc collector, I tend to watch movies and decide whether to buy based on narrative and film-making quality before I hunt for the best quality presentation. Downloads suit me better for this and a 700MB bit-torrent at zero cost helps me justify the ridiculous amount of money the studios make off me from overprices blu-rays and DVDs.
Apple have joined this party late and to be fair they've picked the right party (rental), however, bit-torrent is huge and "The Man" needs to work harder (price cheaper) to buy back loyalty from this film-fan and make the carrot a decent option.

When you say DVD's are cheaper than that, i would really love to know where you are buying your DVD's. BLU RAY costs up to £20 a DVD yet here you can download in high definition for just £12. It seems pretty clear to me which is cheaper.




bruised_blood -> FAO hoisy (5/6/2008 12:28:32 PM)

tesco, sainsburys, play.com, amazon marketplace.

Gold Digger -> Itunes (6/6/2008 2:54:01 PM)

What is the workaround to access US Itunes stuff as mentioned in the above post?
