Fox' Digital HD movies coming to iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Xbox Live, more

Google was one of many on Tuesday to reveal that it has signed a new deal with Twentieth Century Fox to bring over 600 titles to Google Play and YouTube. Dubbed Digital HD and available on the premium services, the shows and movies will be available to rent or buy, with many in high-definition. The campaign is highlighted by Fox's Prometheus, which can be purchased on Tuesday in HD for just under $15, a full three weeks before it comes out on Blu-ray, DVD, and video-on-demand services.

More than 600 Fox films will soon come to Amazon, CinemaNow, Google Play, iTunes, PlayStation, VUDU, Xbox Live, and YouTube in the US as part of the Digital HD package. The next few weeks will see more titles and shows become available, including Family Guy, Glee, Modern Family, New Girl and movies like X-Men, Ice Age, and Black Swan among others.

The Twentieth Century Fox content will first become available in the US, with other markets getting them soon thereafter. The addition means Google is now partnered with six of the major film studios.
