Apple Announces iTunes Movie Purchases Same Day as DVD Release

 

It seems like it was just yesterday when Warner Bros. announced they would be releasing digital rentals of their films on the same day as the DVD is released.

 

Today Apple announced iTunes will offer new release movies for sale the same day as the DVD is released. Apple has secured deals with 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.

 

New release prices are $14.99 while most catalog titles are $9.99.

 

While we think the same day rental news is more exciting, it's a good first step for a lot of these studios.

$15? I like to keep my movies so if I can still get physical DVDs with extras for roughly the same price or rent it with a bunch of other films for that much a month, the DVD will still reign supreme for me.

Canny though, I'll give them that.
