Inception re-download in iCloud

Has anyone tried to redeem their digital copy of "Inception" ??

I redeemed mine and it will not show up under my "purchased" section. The movie is Warner Bros. so it should not be a rights issue. Back to the Future was the same way until today, when it finally worked. That movie is Universal though so I understand why.

Can someone try it or confirm ?



Just noticed that Inception is not even in the iTunes store. Does anyone know why??

Inception is not currently in the iTunes store due to it being on HBO. When a movie is first released, it usually licensed to all of the digital distribution vendors for selling (e.g., iTunes, Vudo, Amazon, etc.); however, after a while that license may expire and the studios instead exclusively license the movie to networks like HBO. Apple is currently in talks with HBO to allow previously purchased videos (like how you purchased Inception) to be re-downloaded by iTunes users, even those those videos are now exclusively licensed to HBO and not purchasable on iTunes.

At least that's my understanding.
