iTunes gets new movie partner

Lionsgate to bring Terminator 2 to iTunes

Lionsgate is the newest movie studio to offer movies for purchase and download via Apple's iTunes Store. The two companies have announced a distribution deal that will see the iTunes Store expand its catalogue of online movies in the US by more than 150 titles, including hits like Terminator 2.

Lionsgate plans to offer past blockbusters like Basic Instinct, The Blair Witch Project, Rambo, Total Recall and Chaplin. The movies will cost $9.99, and will be playable on Macs, PCs, fifth-generation iPods and, soon, Apple TV. They're rendered at 640 x 480 pixels (depending on aspect ratio).

Lionsgate is an independent studio and a producer and distributor of movies, TV programmes and home entertainment content. It counts more than 10,000 titles in its library.

iTunes movie download store is expected to become available in Europe this spring.
