Movies From Universal Pictures Now Available Through iTunes in the Cloud


While Universal’s films are now available through iCloud, customers looking to re-download 20th Century Fox must still wait for that content, even though HBO was said last month to have reached an agreement. The Wall Street Journal said at the time that Fox expected to have its content on iCloud “within weeks,” suggesting it may not be a much longer wait.

Update: I originally wrote “iTunes Match” in the headline, but that’s specific to music. What we’re talking about here is the new feature where, once you’ve bought a movie or song from iTunes, you can re-download/re-stream it whenever you want. The “match” in iTunes Match is specific to the idea that it works with songs no matter where you got them from.
