Canadian iTunes Store adds HD movies

updated 03:50 pm EST, Wed December 16, 2009

Country lags behind US

Visitors to the Canadian iTunes Store now have access to HD movies, Apple has announced. Titles can be bought for between $15 and $25 CAD, and rented for $5 or $6, depending on a movie's age and popularity. A limited selection is presently available, but does include movies like Inglourious Basterds, American Psycho, Star Trek, Coraline and Iron Man.

Despite the proximity and relative wealth of the Canadian market, Apple has generally lagged in terms of parity between the Canadian and American iTunes Stores. For some time Canadian video was mostly limited to music clips and Pixar shorts, and the initial arrival of movies and TV shows presented people with a fraction of the content available just miles south. Americans have had access to HD movies from iTunes since March.

    crazy!

    Not only is Apple Canada habitually late to the party (as they were what, years late to offering music to Canadians), but $5 for a 1-day movie rental? $15-$20 for a movie with much less quality and fewer features than a $10 DVD?

    I can't believe they are actually charging 50% and more than the US store for the same items...

    The movie is in HD. What do you mean "less quality" than a DVD?
