    As someone who probably spends more on Movies and TV shows than Music, if (and I grant it is a big if) Apple were to announce an Apple Music like service for Movies and TV Shows (stream or download items from the store for offline use), would you sign up? I know this is probably going to be a tough sell to the HBOs, Showtimes of the world, but could this work for the others? I know Apple was trying to get into this game and shelved it, but if it does come to fruition would you sign up?

    Considering that it's been more than ten years since TV content was added to iTunes US but still isn't available from iTunes NZ, I'd rather use an existing service. If Apple had the rights to content then it'd probably already be available for purchase.

    Impossible because of the vast number (100s or even 1000s to get a nearly complete package) of content providers/owners (music only has 4 major labels to deal with in the US) and very few would indorse this since they make FAR more profits in other ways, like cable bundled packages, premium services, sales and pay per views.

    All points are very reasonable. I will freely admit the chances of this are next to zero for all the reasons Julien outlined, but was just curious if there was anyone else with the appetite for this.

    Yeah. Personally though I'd love something like this.
