iTunes movies

So, a couple of weeks ago Apple announced movies in the UK for the ATV (Apple TV). This weekend I thought I'd test it so I bought a non HD movie (Juno) and rented a full HD 5.1 movie (The Mummy). Juno took about 30 mins to download whilst The Mummy took nearer a couple of hours. Both movies were good qaulity but I noticed jitters a few times on fast moving scenes. There were not too many compression artifacts and the sound was good. The rental lasts for 30 days but once you play it you only have 48 hours to finish it. The purchased one backloaded to my PC and is mine to keep forever. Overall I am prety impressed - Blockbusters watch out!
