Rumors have been swirling that Apple will be offering movie rentals over iTunes
for weeks now. Now it would appear that Warner Bros have joined Disney, Twentieth Century Fox
, Lionsgate and Paramount in the initial launch. This, according to sources speaking anonymously to Bloomberg
. The announcement is expected to be made on January 15th according to the report, presumably during Jobs' MacWorld keynote. Both new releases and older titles will rent for $3.99 for 24 hours
sources also indicate that Fox may join as a supplier of movie downloads. While the details may change, an iTunes rental service announcement on Tuesday seems a near certainty given the recent multi-source, confluence of data.
