    This is lame. I can't purchase any 1080p on my computer. Only Apple TV has access to it atm it seems. :(

    I knew it would be FREE for 720p owners! But I was wrong about having three different video flavors :D:eek:

    Just to let everyone know: In order for existing 720p owners to upgrade to 1080p, you have to go into the Store settings in the iTunes preferences and select 1080p.

    Thanks Apple!

    Also you can re-download everything in 1080P for free.

    Download Previous Movie Purchases: US ONLY

    I can confirm that downloading previously purchased movies only works in the US.

    Apple.com (US):
    Apple.ca (Canada):
    Apple.com/uk (UK):

    One little thing, there are two settings in preferences:

    Playback > Preferred Video Version > High Definition (1080p)
    Store > When downloading High Definition videos, prefer > 1080p

    This way, HD is your pref from the Store and playback

    I tried updating 1 episode.

    iTunes keeps 3 files now for each episode so you can switch back an forth to 720P without downloading it again.

    So you now have SD, HD, 1080P in your iTunes library.

    I don't know if I'll update everything at once since I have 1600 episodes to upgrade and about 400 movies. That might take a minute.

    Unfortunately still getting explicit songs replaced by clean songs. I was hopeful that the update to iTunes match would fix this bug.

    oops. Finally got the 10.6 update, everything works fine now. Sorry about the previous post.

    Strange. It doesn't offer any of those options in Preferences in iTunes, either in Playback or Store. Also, I upgraded to 10.6, but it only downloaded 10.5.3 in my MAC.

    Very nice catch!

    That's funny, it was a 81.4MB download for me. Although this might be because it's an update.

    Same problem here. I'm not looking foward to when they do fix it and having to sift through thousands of matched songs to find the ones they messed up.

    Hopefully they'll offer a simple tool that with one click allows you do download the non censored version of all matched tracks without having to sort through. after all, their mess, they should offer an easy fix.

    HOW?

    Also, I cannot see the movies section in the purchased section. What kind of punishment is this? :(

    This is fantastic news! 1080p upgrading is such a great user-benefiting move.

    I do wonder, though...where is iTunes 11?

    To see what content that is available in 1080, make sure you select not on this computer when going to purchases in iTunes. All my HD TV shows are available.

    Yes, Finally!
    But they wouldn't want to undermine the iTunes Plus format by offering a better quality option.
