UK iTunes Store gets HD movie purchases

Apple lagging behind on international video

People can now finally buy HD movies at the UK iTunes Store, reports say. Selection is said to be very limited, at present featuring the critically panned Twilight: Eclipse. High-profile titles like Eclipse, which costs 10 in standard definition, are priced at 13 for HD. Discount films are 7 in SD and 8 in HD.

Apple has been slow to grow movie options in countries outside the US. The UK only gained movie sales and rentals in June 2008, for instance, with HD limited to rentals only. Many countries still lack one or more forms of iTunes video. Apple's movie and TV sales have lagged well behind music and apps, however, something the company has tried to address with the iPad and the second-generation Apple TV.
