iTunes Store sells 2 billion songs, 50 million TV shows, 1.3 million movies


Apple today announced that more than 2 billion songs, 50 million television episodes and over 1.3 million full-length films have been purchased and downloaded from the iTunes Store. Apple said iTunes now offers over 4 million songs, 250 feature films, 350 television shows and over 100,000 podcasts. As expected, Apple has added more than 100 movies, priced at $9.99 each, from Paramount Pictures to the iTunes Store.

“iTunes has crossed another major milestone by selling over two billion songs—with over a billion of them sold in the last year alone—making it by far the world’s most popular music store,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “And by selling 50 million TV shows and over 1.3 million movies to date, iTunes is already the largest online video store in the world as well.”
