Apple’s iTunes has added a bunch of new HD content including Disney hit titles Bolt, Hannah Montana: The Movie, and the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. With the HD movie purchase you also get smaller iPhone and iPod versions in standard definition.
Added titles also include HD versions of Wall-E, Hero, Ratatouille, Knowing, Jonas Brothers: The Concert Experience, James Bond titles, Up, Wall•E, , Ironman, Twilight, and the Star Trek pre-order. Apple has close to 300 high-definition titles for rent or purchase, but you won’t find many deals in their library.
HD movies from iTunes will usually run you $19.99 a pop, $14.99 for standard definition. Premium movies are pretty much expected to run full price. But older movies and movies that barely opened the theater are priced essentially the same. I found Terminator 2 for $12.99, and National Treasure for $15.99. But those were few and far between. Come on Apple, cut us a deal.
Some HD titles also include iTunes Extras which give you behind-the-scenes interviews, documentaries and photo galleries. You’ll need iTunes 9 to view newly added features and content. FYI – iTunes will also need the latest Safari to run the iTunes store application.
