    With music and apps, iTunes acts as the store, but the owners of the music and the apps set the prices, not Apple.

    I'd imagine that movies are the same way.

    I would not expect a big discount.

    Wait, you can buy an iPad but can't afford the content to put on it?

    Actually you have a point. He was not begging for free stuff like many others have. I stand corrected.

    The Studios seem very reluctant to engage in new markets at all, nevermind giving heavy discounts. They would be much happier if you kept going down to the shops and forking over your cash for DVDs and BluRays. On the other hand, the App market is still new and I guess the big gaming studios are happy selling lots and lots of games at under £5 at the moment. They might start getting greedy and try to edge up the game prices towards the level of DS and PSP games, but it's unlikely as there are too many indie developers producing games like Angry Birds.

    If DVD and Blu-Ray numbers start falling, the studios might start getting desperate and start paying more attention to digital content.

    DVD numbers are definitely falling. The only place where I can find DVDs to purchase in a store is B&N. Plus it is always cheaper to buy online from Amazon or B&N anyway.
