iTunes selling, renting movies in recently opened stores
After launching the iTunes Store in a slew of countries earlier this month, Apple has began selling and renting movies in 42 of those locales. According to AppleInsider, the newly added countries that have movie purchases as of today are:
Europe: Belarus, Moldova, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine
Africa, the Middle East and India: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Botswana, Cape Verde, Egypt, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, India, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Swaziland, United Arab Emirates, Uganda and Zimbabwe
Asia Pacific: Indonesia, Micronesia, Mongolia, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan
Latin America and the Caribbean: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago
AI notes that though movies and rental have gone on sale in those countries, many of them offer a limited selection -- some only offering movies from Disney and Sony and their subsidiaries. Also, not all of the countries listed above offer HD movies or movie rentals. The lack of offerings is no doubt due to geographic licensing deals.
