Apple Movie Rentals Not at Promised 1000 Titles

By Dave

Not a big deal here in Canada, as we can’t access most of the wonderful movie titles in iTunes, but it seems like Steve Jobs wasn’t able to live up to the promise he made on stage of having a thousand titles in ready for the movie rental service by the end of February.

It looks thought like they made it over half of the way there, with around 604 titles available for rental, but that is still a fair bit shy of the original estimate of a thousand.

Macworld says that it is because of the movie studios, and not Apple that they haven’t met their goal.

When asked about the delay in movie rentals, Steve Jobs placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of the movie companies, suggesting that deals over rights were taking longer than anyone anticipated.

Has this slow uptake by studios frustrated anyone or have those that used the service been happy with the selection and new additions to the marketplace? Let me know in the comments below.
