Itunes Movie Confirmed

Both Vnunet and PC Pro News are reporting the Apple ITunes news reported here last night. The 487Mb movie is now available in the US. The price has changed from $1.99 to $9.99 though. According to Vnunet that price is a bit high for a few members of the ITunes community.

I have to agree that $9.99 is not a really great value for a movie, although I'm unconvinced that it is the outrageous price that others seem to be claiming it to be. The average price of a DVD, at least here in the US, is above the $9.99 price point, especially for new releases. However downloads of the same settings are of lesser quality, and don't have extra features. I still don't think the pluses and minuses add up, but it's not far off. Ultimately consumers will decide.
