iTunes UK videos soon?
Sources within Apple are claiming that the company is finally set to offer video downloads through the UK iTunes Store. While Americans can currently download TV shows for about $2 an episode, or movies starting at $10, videos have been conspicuously absent from other iTunes Stores around the world, even those in English-speaking countries. The Apple leak reports that this will be remedied within two weeks, as UK videos are essentially ready for sale, waiting only for Apple to make them visible within the iTunes software. No specific movies or TV shows have been suggested as launch titles.
Ars Technica writes that the last suggestion of international video sales came in April, when Apple Europe VP Pascal Cagni told the French paper Les Echos that the European continent would have movies by the end of the year.
