Many iTunes Cloud users outside the U.S. can now watch their favorite synced movies on any computer or iDevice.
As of yesterday, such countries as the U.K., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, along with several in Latin America and the Asia Pacific region, are now on Apple's list for cloud-based movie support. This means that movies purchased from iTunes are automatically synced to the cloud and made available for viewing on any eligible device -- computer, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Apple TV.
Entertainment available throughincludes music, videos, movies, TV shows, books, and apps. People in the U.S. have long been able to synchronize all of these things. But the rollout has been slower for those abroad.
Anything you purchase through iTunes is stored online via iCloud. But it doesn't count against your iCloud quota, giving you a healthy amount of space to house your movies, music, and other items.
You can stream your movies and showsdirectly from the cloud or download them onto your device to watch them offline.
