Apple Rolls Out iTunes in The Cloud For Movies In 11 New Countries And For TV Shows in France
Apple has expanded iTunes Movies in the cloud to 11 new European countries today, allowing iTunes users in these countries to re-download previously purchased movies onto their computers or iOS devices.
The new countries include Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
iTunes in the Cloud offers an ‘Automatic Downloads’ feature, which automatically downloads new apps, music and book purchases to all your iOS devices (Settings -> iTunes & App Stores -> Automatic Downloads) over a Wi-Fi network or over a cellular network if you’ve enabled it (Settings -> iTunes & App Stores -> Use Cellular Data). It also allows users to re-download previously purchased iTunes content such as music, movies, and TV shows on all their iOS devices.
Apple has been rolling out the iTunes in the Cloud feature for movies and TV shows in phases. Though iTunes in the Cloud was launched in June 2011, Apple added movie and TV show support for U.S. users in March 2012. With today’s rollout, it is now available in nearly 100 countries.
In addition to iTunes in the cloud for movies roll out, French site iGen reports that Apple has also added iTunes in the cloud support for TV shows in France, making it only the 5th country to get it after the U.S, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.
