    Will they do the same as putting crap music as song of the week, or will they release 99cents movies that is award winning and a box office hit?

    Apple has also begun informing subscribers to its e-mail newsletters that it will offer a selected movie title each week at a 99-cent price, or a third of the price of a back catalog, standard-definition title. The first title is The Hours.

    The movie's special pricing takes effect each Thursday and lasts until the following Monday, giving customers the opportunity to finish downloading and playing the movie before the weekend ends.

    Apple has regularly offered discounts on music with its free weekly tracks, but until now has not supplied a regular discount on videos.

    Re: .99c iTunes Movie Rentals

    Where do you see it in iTunes? I had to manually search "The Hours" to see the discounted movie rental of the week and it is indeed just 99c. Did I miss something in the iTunes Store homepage? Or we have to "guess" for it every week and just be lucky if the movie we want is discounted?

    I saw it on the front page of the iTunes Store, and in the iTunes e-mail.
