    Hi everyone, while on the subject of movies I wondering if someone could answer my question <sorry to crash this thread> I am new to the whole iTunes thing but was wondering how much it costs. For example does the rental price of the movie include broadband usage costs? The reason I ask is because I pay $10 a GB with Optus and a HD movie say is 3GB so that would be around $30 plus the cost of the rental. surely this can not be the case can it?

    thanks in advance for any clarity you can give me.
    Cheers

    The cost of renting is unlikely to include the cost of the download. One cost is levied by your ISP, the other by the movie rental company.

    so Am I on the wrong plan? Surely it must be a lot cheaper per GB to make this even start to look worthwhile.. Any suggestions on plans in that case. I am on prepaid ATM. $80 for 8gb.

    I'm in Canada so I don't know about plans in Oz. we do have members from your part of the world though. Hopefully they'll pitch in.

    No 3G plan in Australia will give you good value. It is better if you can use wifi (ie. through your home or other broadband where Internet usage is way mr affordable. Maybe download your iTunes movie on your PC or Mac in that environment then transfer to your iPad.

    Hi to answer your question first iunes Australia is more expensive than USA iTunes but not by a huge amount.. I can give you details on how to access iTunes USA by send ing me a private message. You purchase an American iTunes card for $52 converted is about $52 Australian at this time and then you can rent a huge selection from USA iTunes. The next issue is donot even consider this if you are on 3G. You must be on broadband with wifi with at least a minimum of 20gb per month. Average Sd movie is 2 gb Hd is around 3.5 gb. Adsl2 or cable is ideal. If you have any other questions just ask.

    Just for the record I cannot provide the email of my contact in the forum for obvious reasons lol. I personally have Apple TV on the USA iTunes site plus 2 iPads plus 2 iPhones and a MacBook. I can switch on the fly between USA , Australia and British iTunes stores. The British iTunes 50 pound cards can be purchased via eBay for around $70 Australian if you purchase apps all sync fine however updates require you to switch iTunes stores. It is that simple. It is not just the movies but also the music that is available. I love the foreign movies and there are many on both the USA iTunes store and British iTunes store. Have fun...
