Over fifty countries have access to iTunes in the Cloud for music and music videos, and now Apple is expanding iTunes in the Cloud for movies. While iTunes movies are sold in a number of countries around the world, the iTunes in the cloud feature for movies was only available in the United States. Apple has now made this service available to 37 more countries.
iTunes in the Cloud for movies is now available in countries around the world, including the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. Some countries, like Germany, Spain, and Japan, have unfortunately been left out. More details on which countries can now access this service can be seen on the Apple website.
For those that don’t know, iTunes in the cloud allows any previously purchased content to be re-downloaded on various Apple devices, including Macs, iPhones, iPads, or Apple TV.
However, not everything that has been purchased will be available for this service due to licensing agreements. Some studios are not on board with this feature at all. Both Universal and Fox were missing from the cloud, but Universal movies and Fox movies were recently made available with their movies now on this service.Follow @macgasm
