Portugal gains iTunes movie rentals

updated 09:00 pm EDT, Fri October 28, 2011

Prices start at $4.25, limited selection

A MacNN reader has reported an announcement from Apple that iTunes movie rentals are now available in that country. While the iTunes Store has been available for music in Portugal since October of 2004, this is the first time movies have been available for rental. Prices for film rentals appear to start at 3, or about $4.25. The country also recently got its own iBookStore at the end of September. Apple only got iTunes stores running in all EU countries last month.

The Portugal store still does not offer TV shows, but now rents movies in both standard and high definition, though selection on the latter is quite limited. Short films are also available for purchase. The current top rental is the animated movie Rio, while the top-selling movie purchase is the 2010 documentary Inside Job, which covers the 2008 worldwide economic crisis.
