    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...

    I had an idea...

    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..

    check this App out Kinohunt
    It tracks both SD/HD rent/buy prices and send you push notification whenever there is a price drop. just like AppShopper for movies.
