to me it says:

"It's Showtime. The iTunes Store is being updated."

I wouldn't be surprised if the only announcement is the increased capacity iPods and the iTunes Video Store selling feature length films.

What do you think the chances are of a new version of iTunes released today to coincide with the addition of movies? iTunes 7 or 6.5 perhaps?

On the one hand, the addition of movies isn't much different from the TV shows already available, but on the other hand, assuming a new video-enabled AirPort is launched, a new version of iTunes might be needed to use it. A check box "Look for remote Televisions connected to Video AirPort"

I so hope rumors about videos/movies being burnable to DVD are true...if not they're shotting themselves in the foot.

Ok, if you could somehow hook your TV up to the video Airport and then stream movies from iTunes to your TV...that would rock.

But I doubt it'll happen.

\can't get hopes up too high

There have been several reports now about a video-enabled AirPort base station... It's relatively likely to happen :)

Yeah, but would it allow you to hook up to a TV rather than another computer? And if so, would you be able to choose the video to play from the TV instead of from the computer you're streaming from?

"It's Showtime", "Showtime" is capitalized which means it could be the name of a new product...new app? Whatever the case I can't wait :woot:

Apple Showtime: The Entire Event Leaked?

Let's just say I have been informed by a little reliable birdy about Tommorow's event. The line-up will follow this similar structure:

Welcoming of Media Members

Discussion on iTunes software, iTMS integration into iTunes, and iTMS

sales and facts.

Announcement of iTunes version 7.0

Announces better search feature for Music Store

Announces Movie Store. Available Immediately will be movies from

Disney and Pixar, among other studios.

New iPod Nano Announcement (nice brushed casing, while it will have

same features as first gen, only a longer battery life)

New iPod Announcement (Widescreen, Bluetooth, and featuring virtual

touchwheel. Does not include Wi-Fi, or any other protocols)

One More Thing....

TubePort. A $99 2-piece set that includes a dongle that connects via USB to your mac, and another dongle that connects via included HD cables or regular Component cables to your TV. The movie is accessed on your Mac via an iDisk-like storage component hosted by Apple.

Jobs will then explain the pricing structure of the Movie Store.

Movies wil be available as either a smaller iPod-format (which will

cost $9.99 per movie), or as a larger, streamed movie to be streamed

to your TV via TubePort. This cost $14.99 per movie. To purchase an

iPod-formatted movie and a streamed version of the same movie, it will

cost you $19.99.

Hope this is not the case. Way too expensive.

There is no incentive to buy an iTunes movie at $15 when I can buy the DVD for the same price. I can then rip the DVD to my iPod, my PC, anywhere I want. Plus I get all the bonus features and extras not available on the iTunes version.

It should not cost more than $9.99, and the movie should be burnable to DVD.
