iTunes Store películas (provisional)
After months and months without news that Apple finally made available to the Spanish market its system for selling and renting movies, we can now say it clearly: The movies are now available for buy and rent in the Spanish iTunes Store .
At the time of writing this entry, they don’t even appear on the front page of the iTunes Store yet, but you can access the movie content directory by clicking on this link (it will take you to the iTunes browser). There you can select any genre and see which are the first movies we have available to buy or rent.
The rental price is 2.99 euros and the purchase price is 9.99 euros for titles that are not new. For novelties, prices go up to 3.99 euros for renting, and 13.99 euros for buying. Films for sale and rental can be downloaded in HD, and rental works this way: When you download a movie you have 30 days to start watching it. From the moment you start watching it, you have 48 hours to finish it.
We can only hope that they will also incorporate series in their catalogue, although the arrival of films in the Spanish shop is a move that many users have been waiting for. Without a doubt, it was the key to the new Apple TV soon being officially sold in Spain.
Thanks a lot to @nachomoreno, who told me through Twitter, and to iKenny, who wrote us an email with the news in his blog!
