>When it comes to Apple Products Canada has always pretty much sucked. Â Not as much as Canadian Idol but pretty close.
We still don’t have the Iphone, Apple Stores are as scarce as my chances of ever getting on Survivor and Itunes caught up in copyright hell when it comes to Tv shows, movies and videos.
Well a couple of months ago we finally got the right to buy and download TV Shows on Itunes, granted they are Canadian shit like Heartland, Corner Gas, Robson Arms and JPod. Over the past couple of weeks things have been getting a little better. Â South Park has recently popped up. Â So has The Tudors and pretty much the entire Spike TV line up. Â
And on Wednesday morning many Itunes users in Canada probably noticed that we FINALLY have movies….to rent. Â Hey, it’s pretty than nothing. Â Prices of the movies range from $3,99 to $5,99. Â To how do you rent a digital movie? Â Well once you download it you have two months to watch it BUT once you start watching it you only have 48 hours to finish. Â In that 48 hours you can watch the movie as much as you want. Â I also checked into it and as of Wednesday you cannot rent the movie 48 Hours.Â unfortunately
The great thing about renting these movies is that you can rent them the same day they come in video stores (remember those!) But be warned you can only watch them on Video Ipods, the new Nanos, Ipod Touch and those 4 people with Apple TV can watch it too. Â So as long as you have one of those gadgets you too can now rent THX 1138 which for some inexplicable reason is #98 on the Itunes rental charts. Â Seriously.
