New Movies Now Available for Purchase on iTunes Same Day as DVD Release


Apple today announced that new movie releases from major film studios and premier independent studios are available for purchase on the iTunes Store on the same day as their DVD release. New releases and catalog titles will be available from 20th Century Fox, The Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Lionsgate, Image Entertainment and First Look Studios.

Next step: work on moving the rental availability up.

Update: Ends up they’ve also enabled purchasing movies directly from Apple TV — prior to today, all you could do from Apple TV was rent.
