Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios has begun offering titles from its extensive catalog of feature films for purchase and download on Apple’s iTunes Store, significantly boosting the store’s movie range.
MGM has the largest modern film library in the world and has received 208 Academy Awards in its history, making it one of the biggest award-winning collections of films in the world.
With MGM becoming the latest movie studio to partner with Apple, iTunes customers can now purchase films such as Dances With Wolves, Mad Max, and Rocky. More titles are to be added in the coming weeks.
More than two million movies have now been downloaded from the iTunes Store, making it the world’s most popular online movie store, said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. We’re absolutely thrilled so many legendary MGM films are joining an iTunes film catalog that now has over 500 movies.
Movies downloaded from the iTunes Store are downloaded in near-DVD quality at a resolution of 640×480 (up to 480, depending on the aspect ratio) and can be viewed on a computer, fifth generation iPod or widescreen TV with Apple TV.
