    I thought digital downloads were meant to be cheap? Oh well. That's Apple for you.

    yeah there was legal issues, im still hopign that they introduce this ipod version of movies on DVDs over here too that would be ace.

    though theres a rather large diference between the prices of movies, im trying to dicide ona good sample movie that ive not seen that id like to buy. for example the manchurian candidate is £6.99 where Into the wild is £10.99. thats rather big difference!

    It looks like the latest or most popular will be £10.99 and all others will be £6.99 to buy. For the latter there are some very old titles you can buy on DVD as a budget title for around £3.00 so they need to sort that out - £6.99 is OK for a couple years old but beyond that it really needs to be around £3 to £4.

    Definately the way forward the though, I have around 300 DVD's but end up watching cable because I can't be bothered getting them out of the cupboard and putting them in the DVD player, and ripping would be a bit boring to be honest. An easy download to play on my computer, iPod or iPhone or on the 50inch Bravia via iPod and component cable is far more appealing.

    On a side note if anyone remembers VHS, I watched Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels the other night I dug out of the wardrobe (where all my out of date stuff hides, the Acorn Electron is lurking somewhere in there plotting world domination with it's 32k). I'm not sure what was more annoying, the movie previews I had to use a fast forward to get past or the fact it was released in 1998 (probably explains the dust on that big lumping case).

    morning, oh £10.99 that's abit steep for online distribution. I havnt seen one yet like that. I think apple can put their prices up high cause people WILL buy them. Many people have iPods and not computer 'savy'. Also I don't think there is any other online seller out there that is better than iTunes in movies and videoes. Well that's what the gadget show said...
