iTunes Movies in the Cloud expands to 37 countries

iTunes movies are sold in multiple countries across the world, but the iTunes in the Cloud feature for movies was previously restricted to the United States. Apple has now rolled out the feature to 37 new countries, including the UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Not everything that users have purchased will be available due to licensing agreements, but it’s good to see the feature expanding to additional territories.

The feature has expanded to multiple regions including Europe and Asia, with countries including Argentina, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. Some regions have been left out, however, such as Germany, Spain, and Japan. The full list of countries that can take advantage of iTunes in the Cloud is available on Apple’s website.

iTunes in the Cloud allows you to download any previously purchased content to your various Apple devices, such as Macs, iPhone, or iPads. Movies were added to the cloud earlier this year, including an option for 1080p. Not all the studios were onboard the plan originally, with Universal and Fox movies missing from the Cloud scheme thanks to viewing deals with HBO. Universal movies made the jump to the cloud not too long ago, and certain Fox movies also recently appeared on the service.
