In addition to Apple-documented changes from iTunes 7.0 to version 7.1, released today, several more interesting details have been discovered in the software and detailed by iLounge’s editors.

One change, a list of countries for which parental controls can be applied, shows Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom as newly selectable options for Ratings standards used outside of the United States. All of the countries save for the United Kingdom now have both TV and movie ratings; the United Kingdom now has selectable movie ratings, but not TV ratings. While not conclusive, the addition of this feature suggests that the iTunes Store will soon sell video content across all six of these territories.

Additional text discovered within the iTunes software reveals that it will support a maximum of five synchronized Apple TV hardware units at once, a previously unknown limitation. For additional information on these and other updates to iTunes 7.1, including full-screen Cover Flow and more, check out our new article, Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iTunes 7.1.

Can’t wait to sample some movies and TV shows. I hope to be able to replicate the chaptering of iTunes movies with my own ripped from DVD.

Interesting the TV ratings field is grayed out for the UK - hopefully this is just because we don’t have official ratings, not because we won’t get TV (especially now we don’t get Sky one on NTL :-( )

I think it is because don’t have “ratings” as such, just the code of conduct that programmes which contain ‘adult’ material are shown after the watershed of 9pm.

I guess time will reveal all wink

Regarding the lack of UK TV ratings, the “Instant Expert” article says “Notably the United Kingdom has no option for TV ratings; our editor in the United Kingdom notes that TV shows aren’t rated there, but movies are.”
