Fox movies could be on their way to iTunes Store

News Corp. said Wednesday that it is having “positive talks” with Apple about bringing its Fox movie library to the iTunes Store. Peter Chernin, News Corp.‘s president and chief operating officer, disclosed the discussions with Apple during a financial conference call with analysts and reporters. Walt Disney is currently the only movie studio offering ful-length movies on iTunes. The Fox movie studio includes many titles, including hits like the “X-Men” and Star Wars” films. Several of News Corp.‘s Fox television shows, including “Prison Break” and “24” are currently available for download on iTunes.

I will probably never buy any movies from iTunes. There prices are outragous. I am more towards xbox live being able to download TV Shows, rent movies, and possibly later, even rent TV Shows and buy movies. I believe there will be a major amount of content, videos and possibly music, in the not so near future. I am really looking forward to it. I believe that Apple should offer their customers something a little more than just the movie. Maybe something like if you purchase a movie, you get a discount on the next movie purchased.

Issues on pricing (even discounts) are out of Apple’s hands—it’s up to the movie studios.

The movie and record studios already think iTunes sells things for too cheap a price. Trust me, if Apple had their way, the content would be MUCH cheaper.
