I was quite pleased the other day to hear that movies films would be available in the UK iTunes Store.
At the time I had a quick look over the store and saw lots of films. The number one film was (at that time) I am Legend, I was quite impressed that the price for the film was only £6.99 – and that seemed to explain why it was number one. I was also interested to see that National Treasure 2 was also available and thought “I’ll rent that”.
At that time I was busy with work so knew I would leave until later to get them.
So today I upgraded my version of iTunes and decided I would buy I am Legend and rent National Treasure 2.
So you can imagine my disappointment, to see that I am Legend had gone up in price to £10.99. So why was it cheaper to begin with? Why has it gone up? Was it a mistake that Apple has now corrected? Or did I imagine it all?
Ah well so not to worry I’ll rent National Treasure 2 instead. Even with the rental limitation, I was fine with that, I could always transfer the film to an iPod and connect the iPod to my television.
Yes, though I can buy National Treasure 2 for £10.99, I couldn’t rent it!
It’s suppose to be a reasonably fun film, worth renting, but not worth buying it and certainly not worth paying £10.99.
So my first proper attempt to get films off the iTunes Store was not a great success, ah well maybe next time.
