iTunes Store Price Tracking

Does anyone know of a website/app that will track iTunes music/movie/tv show prices? What I'm looking for is a service similar to what the AppShopper site/app does for apps, but for music/movies/tv shows for sale on the iTunes Store.

I know this thread is almost a year old, but I've been looking for exactly the same thing. Did you ever find such an app or site that tracks iTunes prices for TV Shows/Movies?

Strange... with all the app price tracking wites & apps out there, you'd think someone would have one for music/movies/tv shows...

Send a request to www.camelcamelcamel.com That might be something that would attract them. It's already a fantastic site for tracking Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg.

Good idea. I use camelcamelcamel for Amazon - would be exactly what I'm looking for...

I almost never buy music from iTunes. Has been more 100% of the time for me. I go to Amazon, and usually save about 30% on music over iTunes.

I rarely buy music from iTunes, but frequently buy TV shows...

Checked in with camelcamelcamel (never heard back) and AppShopper (not on their radar)... hope someone does something with this idea...

Nearest thing I could find is this site, but it's clearly linked to the US iTunes store, in US dollars, and so of no use to those of us in the UK.

I'm also looking for a solution for searching for cheap movies. The prices on many older films go up and down constantly.
For example, the other day, movies like Ghostbusters 1 & 2, 28 Days Later 1 & 2, King Kong (Extended), Alien 1 & 2 (Director's Cut), the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and MORE were all lowered in price to $9.99 Two days later, and they're back to their normal prices. The sale was unadvertised, and only up for a day!
Any system to monitor these random price drops would be stellar.

Anyway.. the iPhone has a web app available in the iTunes store called IFTTT (If This, Then That). I think there might be a way to use itmsmoviedeals.com RSS feed to send a push notification or text message command straight to your phone whenever it's updated..
I have not tried it yet though..
