Apple Launching New Movie Service In England

Apple has scored a series of new deals that’ll bring movie download services to England.

The company is teaming up with Disney, Paramount, Twentieth Century Fox, and Warner Brothers to offer the studios’ films through its U.K. iTunes service, according to information obtained by the London-based Times. The service is also expected to be extended to Canada.

Apple hasn’t yet said how much it’ll charge for the downloads but did indicate the pricing would be roughly comparable to DVD costs, leading to guesses ranging from six to 25 pounds (or roughly $11 to $49 in U.S. currency).

While other companies are already offering online downloads of Hollywood hits, these deals mark the first time such services have been offered in England, according to the Times.

A formal launch date has not yet been announced.
