    I was browsing through iTunes on my iPhone today, and was struck by a question - is Apple allowing, or planning to allow us to redownload movies that we've purchased, or just music?

    Might be a stupid question - sorry.

    I don't think it is A stupid question, because it wasn't made clear... I think the answer is probably no, because apple didn't sign deals with movie studios like they did with labels for music

    Currently, music only.

    Are they planning, well only Apple knows that.

    Music only for now.

    I kind of thought it would extend to movies/tv shows but doesn't appear so... at least yet!

    I think this would be a big deal, particularly TV shows. I currently don't purchase TV episodes from iTunes, but if I could redownload them, on demand to any iOS device at any time, I might change my mind.

    You can always go into iTunes, right click on the movie and click on Show In Finder. You can then copy it to your public folder and then into another computer using iTunes. That's what I did. So now I have my purchased movies on both my MacBook and my Windows desktop using iTunes.

    this.

    I always make sure to have a backup of my videos just incase. Sometimes I burn them on DVDs too.

    I wonder about music videos. The ones I purchased do not appear on iCloud.

    I believe that Apple classifies those as videos, no music, due to the differences in the media and copyright laws.

    Mine do (or did), they were mixed into the music section.
