    Two of my Harry Potter titles aren't showing as purchased (they were all digital copies) but I'm hoping that will resolve itself in time.



    I have two Harry Potters also missing. Cars 2 is not there either.

    I love the new UI... I think it's awesome looking and most important, practical.

    I don't like the idea of a 12-24 month contract to buy an iTV. I thought the iTV would provide an alternative to the cable/sat contract model with a one box home entertainment system providing FTA TV, movie rentals, streaming purchased iTunes content (movies, tv, music, games, apps, etc) and the option to subscribe to single channel app's like MLB.

    This is working in the UK for purchased/free TV Shows, but not for movies. I get a Purchased tab on Apple TV where I can stream shows. Guess its a licensing issue with movies in the UK as usual.

    PS: Do people really hate this 4th Apple TV UI because I think it's the best one they've released.



    I think it's the first that actually makes me buy an Apple TV. In Switzerland TV sucks, but for everything non-TV Apple TV with the new UI may just be the mood changer. Anyway I know some people who are definitely in for the new device.

    How did you get the extras? I tried with a digital copy of Captain America but it just downloaded an SD copy of the movie and nothing else.

    I'm thinking they are victims of similar broadcast exclusive deals like the Universal and Fox with HBO and we will see them later on.

    I don't think has anything to do with HBO contracts.



    A friend of mine with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and The Nightmare Before Christmas digital copies has them showing up as available for streaming. However on my iMac with those tow digital copies installed they are not showing up for streaming.



    I think this has much more to do with inaccuracies in the way Apple is determining eligibility.



    For the record, Half-Blood Prince is the only one of the six Harry Potter movies I have digital copies for that is not available for streaming.

    But then they can't subsidize the TV. If they subsidize it it'll be a hit. Perhaps in your scenario they can offer people an option to buy it at full price? $1,299 off contract?

    Oh I see, you mean Apple discounts the purchase price of the iTV in return for the user taking out a 12-24 month contract with Apple for some form of TV streaming service. This would provide access to all or most of the content on the iTunes Store for a fixed monthly price. That gives you all the films you could want and TV shows plus music and maybe games. A sort of Lovefilm/Netflix + Spotify + OnLive. You could then add on your own subscription app's for things like live sports. Presumably your subscription would also allow you to watch the streamed content on your iPad and iPhone as well all for say £20/month. Interesting idea. I see where your coming from now.

    In the Store Preferences of iTunes, it now shows 'When downloading High Definition videos, prefer" you then have the choice of 720p or 1080p. I wonder if this will over write the Digital copy version on the disc.
