Lions Gate Entertainment confirms iTunes movie deal

Lions Gate Entertainment CEO Jon Feltheimer has confirmed that the movie studio has partnered with Apple and other companies to sell its films online. During the studio’s quarterly conference call earlier this month, Feltheimer said Lions Gate has “deals in place with Cinema Now, MovieLink, and iTunes, with upcoming announcements with at least two more major industry players.” Later in the call, Lions Gate President Steve Beeks said the iTunes Music Store will see full-length movie downloads sometime this year. “In terms of iTunes movie downloads, I think most likely some time before the end of the year,” Beeks said. “We know when they are planning on launching, but since they have not announced it publicly, I do not think it is our place to say anything more about that.”
