Apple is now offering a sale on iTunes movie and TV bundles, featuring some surprisingly deep discounts. For example, the entire eight-film Harry Potter collection is being sold for $10 in SD or HD, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is being offered for the same price. The Godfather Trilogy, Back to the Future Trilogy, and a 10-film Star Trek collection are also offered, among many other bundles. Some discounted bundles have appeared in the TV show section as well, including The Sopranos Seasons 1-3 and 4-6 for $45 each—notably down from $125 total before, but up from $40 per bundle several days ago—and a Fan Favorites collection from Star Trek: The Original Series for $10.

Update: Some of the bundle prices were changed early in the sale — the Harry Potter collection went from $10 to $60, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy changed to $18, and some other prices changed, as well. Though some of those early prices were likely accidental, some buyers did get bundles for those low initial prices.

This promotion doesn’t seem to be going on anymore. I checked my phone, and these prices are not reflected there.

Weird. It worked for me once. I was going to buy the Harry Potter bundle so that I could have it on digital for the kiddos…

Then for whatever reason I closed iTunes, now when I click the link they’re all $59.95 again… Now, when I click the link yet again, the bundle is $9.99 again!

Unfortunately when I try to buy it I get:
Purchase of this item is not currently available.
This item is being modified. Please try again later.

I went shopping and decided on the Harry Potter bundle. I tried to buy it and it timed out. I tried again and it said it was being updated. I tried one more time and the price was at $59.95.

Yeah.  I saw the same thing.  This thing seems to have been an hour sale or some foolishness like that.

FEH! Not one of the bundles is worth the prices they are ACTUALLY charging.

Sorry to miss this one, if it was real.

It was real! I was lucky enough to snag the harry potter movies for $9.99 before the price went up! Glad I jumped on it while it lasted!!
