    Hi Guys,

    I bought Iron Man from iTunes (just checked the receipt in my inbox) back in 2010.
    Now, I want to redownload the item in iTunes as I'm on a new MBP now.

    It won't recharge me will it? (Even though it says, Buy £6.99)

    Thanks.

    This pops up in iTunes, - if I click buy will it charge me again?

    It would appear so. Open iTunes and look to the right for a link for "purchases" and see if your movie appears there.

    Funnily enough, it doesn't. Nor does it appear in my "Check for available downloads..." in the Store menu.

    I've decided to re-download it, if I have any problems with me being charged once more, I'll contact iTunes.

    Are you sure you didn't rent it? I don't think rentals will appear in the available download section. I wasn't sure but didn't see either of the ones I rented after just checking. Just a thought...

    That...just sounds weird to me. "You've already purchased this. Would you like to buy it again". Of coarse! I love paying twice for the same thing that was supposed to be reserved digitally for me anytime anywhere.

    If i had to guess, "buy" is just bad wording for "download again". I'd contact apple and ask before clicking anything. If anything went wrong, they can reverse any charges

    Not all movies will show in purchases because a few studios are holding out Universal being one of them. If you want to download that movie again, it will cost you and it still won't be available in the cloud.

    So..if you purchase a movie through iTunes and somehow it gets deleted, it's gone forever? And you'll have to re-buy it again? What's the benefit of buying it on iTunes vs bluray then?

    I was able to re-download Iron Man 2 from iTunes the other day. I picked it up from a digital copy redemption. I did it ages ago, and was able to download it again without trouble 2 days ago.


    It just took me forever to find the "Purchased" link on the right side of the iTunes main page. Click that, then Movies at the top, should be good to go. Are you sure you are logged into the same account the movie was originally purchased from?

    You need to have the lastest version of iTunes in order to re-download your movies through the purchased tab.

    Also the OP is based in the UK, and Movies in iCloud service is not available in the UK yet.

    Oh, dammit! I didn't know that :(
    Because since, I've clicked "Buy" again, and it hasn't seemed to of charged me. But yes, it hasn't appeared in my Cloud or Purchased (A music video has though) :\

    When i buy stuff off iTunes, the charge doesn't show up for a couple days. So there's still a possibility you could be charged

    Crap. I just deleted Surfs Up so I could get in 1080p.

    Thanks for the clarification. I'm a dick
