iTunes To Launch Movie Rental Service?

According to the Financial Times, Apple is discussing an online movie rental service with Hollywood studios. The rumor mill says it will be a video-on-demand service.

Currently, Apple won't comment on this new venture, which is said to begin this fall, but we've heard the iTunes rentals would only cost $2.99 for a 30-day rental.

We also heard the 30-day rental would let you move a movie from a computer to at least one other device like a video iPod or iPhone. Of course, digital rights-management software would likely prevent these movies from being copied in any way, shape or form.

the rentals sounds great but they should join up with netflix or blockbuster, so they can merge the accounts together. it's a little too pricy for me. i'll just wait a day for my netflix to come in.

this'll be great as long as they can keep up to date with the movies coming out. we usually use amazon unbox for a little more $$, but there are quite a few new releases that you can't rent. i'm looking forward to see what they do...

If it's easy to play them on the tv, I would get it. Like thers said, it'd be great for travelling.

I agree with bugness- it will only be a matter of time before you can download pirating programs.

huh - that would be pretty neat, esp. the movie could be put on the ipod. It would be a great way to take new movies on vacation with me.

Having iChat while I was away from my family was so very cool. I was able to see and talk to them in real-time, which made the separation easier.
