This week's extraordinary deal on films, a whole batch of recent titles, including 2018 Oscar winners are only £2.99 in all formats, leads me to believe that Apple are on the verge of launching the long mooted Film (and possibly TV) subscription service at WWDC19 in the spring. There really can't be any other reason to discount 'Darkest Hour'. 'Three Billboards', 'Baby Driver' and 'Shape of Water' etc. so heavily.

Seems to be a few more providers doing the same. https://www.megamovieweek.co.uk


Megamovieweek is back across Apple Services and other providers again this week. Again a thorough range of quality and genres offered.
noggin and London Lite gave kudos

STV Player is now on AppleTV. Would someone like to download and give a subjective opinion on quality. Looking damn good as far as I'm concerned.

Indeed Emma, the Hunt, and the Invisible Man (2020) have become available today, branded as “Sky Store Premiere” with a red version of the Sky Store logo. For those that are willing to pay €18 for the privilege, of course.

People won't be buying at those prices and if they do it is the cinema chains missing out.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Great value if you're a family of 25 watching in the same room however, much cheaper than the cinema in that case.

The purpose of the offer though is to get metropolitan audiences to fork out for the Premiers. The market is clearly and defined as the first run Cinema Goer. The distributors have a good 9 months worth of premiers lined up which currently have no venues in which to show them. If you're looking at a couple who would have paid £10 each to view these releases at the Cinema offering them this way is a decent deal. The movies will in due course return to the more usual online charges when they get to that stage.
