    Does anybody know when the UK iTunes is likely to be getting movies that we can download.
    I have a UK account and I want to be able to download movies. Obviously this can't be done on the UK site. Does anyone know of any other sites that allow movie download apart from the US site?

    I expect they are doing deals for UK movies at the moment, but your guess is as good as mine as to when they'll be released (I'd don't suppose we'll have to wait too long).

    Otherwise I know of no 'legal' way to get iPod video's from the net.

    You can always buy the DVD, & copy it to your computer, I've heard of iSquint but not really used it. Check version tracker if your interested in that method, there are a lot of app's available for this.

    It does seem like a lot of hassle for me though if you already have it in a superior format.

    Edit - Sorry you didn't mention that they where for the iPod (I didn't read your post, my bad), as for non-iPod video downloads I still don't know of any legal UK option.

    You could buy US iTunes Store gift cards on eBay, and use them to download movies from the US site. Not sure how legal this is, but it will work.

    I cant see why apple are bothering to release the :apple:tv over here with only Pixar shorts and music video in the uk. I don't think I will part with my cash until they sort this out

    Unless you have a US billing address you cannot legally buy from the US store.

    Have you not thought of ripping your DVDs? Much like you rip your CDs to iTunes.
