Movies on iTunes Same Day as DVD Release

May 1, 2021

Apple announced that it will offer movies on iTunes the same day they are released on DVD.  Included in the deal are new releases and catalog titles 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.

Apple pricing for new releases will be 14.99$.

New releases available for purchase on the iTunes Store this week, concurrent with their DVD release, include “American Gangster” and “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.” Other popular titles now available for purchase include “Juno,” “Cloverfield,” “I Am Legend,” “There Will Be Blood,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.”

Too bad this does not include a rental model… I could have used this before “buying” the whole movie. I mean, I can rent the same thing at BlockBuster for 4.99$. Had they offered a 4.99$ option for rental I would have ditched BlockBuster and gone to iTunes for all rental.

Oh!  It is only for US residents… So sorry Canada!
