iTunes customers to hear MGM's roar

iTunes Store now has more than 500 movies

Apple has added MGM's films to the list of movies available through the iTunes Store, which now has over 500 movies.

MGM's famous Leo the Lion has graced the opening of thousands of movies since the dawn of the motion picture industry. Apple doesn't plan to offer all those movies right away, but is starting off with classics like Rocky and Dances With Wolves. (How long will that take to download?)

Movies on iTunes cost between $9.99 and $14.99. Apple plans to add additional titles from MGM's library over the next few weeks. In announcing the MGM deal, Apple said it has now sold over 2 million movies since last September.
