Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Apple Inc. announced that MGM has started offering titles from its catalog of feature films for purchase and download on the iTunes Store. So far, the titles are only available in the US store.
Initially, about 100 titles are available; the number is set to grow to about 500 titles. MGM claims it has the largest modern film library in the world and has received 208 Academy Awards in its history, making it one of the biggest award-winning collections of films in the world.
Earlier this month Apple also introduced a new feature on its iTunes store to stimulate albums sales. Customers who buy a single song from an album can use the amount they paid for that song (99c) towards the cost of the total album, which is typically $9.99. The credit is good for a period of 180 days.
