Movies in iTunes Australia

Apple today announced the availability of movies through the iTunes Stores in Australia and New Zealand. The combined opening gives customers in the southern Pacific countries access to over 700 movies (100 in HD on Apple TV) that are available either to rent, purchase, or both. Customers have the same extended viewing rights as with the iTunes Store in Canada and have up to 48 hours to finish watching or replay movies after starting playback.

Rentals start from A$3.99 (NZ$4.99) for a standard-definition legacy title to A$5.99 (NZ$6.99) for very recent titles; each add an extra dollar for HD rentals. Permanent copies share similar pricing in Australia and New Zealand at $9.99 for older movies, $17.99 for recent titles, and $24.99 for the latest movies.
