Apple is apparently in talks with the movie studios to sign a new exclusive deal which could brings movies to your home a lot quicker than they are available at the moment.
According to a recent report, Apple is trying to convince various movie studios to give it access to movies much earlier and if a deal can be done, movies could be available in iTunes within weeks of their cinema release.
According to Bloomberg, a number of studios which include Warner Bros, 21st Century Fox and Universal Pictures are looking to offer movies at a high cost just two weeks after the cinema release and they are looking at Apple’s iTunes as a way to do this.
At the moment cinemas have exclusives to movies for at least 90 days, then they are released on DVD and digital download.
The movie studios are apparently looking at a premium price for the rental of between $25 and $50 for early access to it.
$25 to $30 would not be a bad price to pay to watch a movie in your own home as it would be about the same price as two cinema tickets, whether people will actually pay this remains to be seen.
As yet there are no details on when Apple might launch this new service, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
