Apple posts full-length movie on iTunes

Test download not for public consumption?

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Apple appears to have begun - albeit in a very small way - full-length movie downloads. The Mac maker yesterday posted a Disney TV movie, High School Musical, on the iTunes Music Store, offering the 1h 40m, 487.1MB film for the best part of $10. The download appears to be a trial run for a Disney Channel video service.

When we searched the US ITMS this morning, only six $1.99 High School Musical videos appeared. Reports of the full film's presence first surfaced on MacRumors.com yesterday. However, the website's link to the ITMS content proved true and there's the movie.

Curiously, the file's located in a section called "Disney Channel", though clicking on the tab in iTunes yields a blank, black page. That suggests the movie's been posted early, possibly in preparation for the much-rumoured full-length movie download service Apple is expected to announced soon, perhaps on 1 April, the company's 30th birthday.

According to folk who've downloaded the movie, its resolution is 320 x 240 and it runs at 29.97fps. ®
