Finally. iTunes Rental Links.
Rentals are finally beginning to appear on the iTunes store tonight. Several hours passed after the Macworld Expo keynote without anything in the way of movie rentals. Many of us were beginning to wonder if we’d misinterpretted the statements from the stage. No worries… Rentals are appearing.
Appears there are 150 rental videos if the advanced search count can be trusted. Some are rent only and can’t be directly linked to yet. Or, they’re buy/rent. I don’t specifically remember the days when there were this few of anything in the iTunes Store (music or otherwise). Jobs sure got a lot of buzz and press out of 150 files.
The following are the only movies I can link directly to (there are several more. However, the “copy iTunes URL” method isn’t working for those. Need to poke around a bit and get my bearings back. Be advised: These links WILL launch iTunes and you’ll need to have upgraded to iTunes 7.6 in order to “rent”):
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
- Usual Supsects
- Jackass: The Movie
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s
- Shakespeare in Love
- The Magnificent Seven (Renting this one myself)
- West Side Story
