“Apple has started selling the first full-length movie through its iTunes media store. The Disney television movie High School Musical is offered at $9.99, after being briefly available for $1.99,” Tom Sanders writes for vnunet.com. “The movie was a hit when first broadcast on the Disney Channel, attracting an audience of 7.7 million viewers. But iTunes users have complained about the movie’s relatively high price and limited resolution. While the download costs as much as a regular DVD, it offers only a limited resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and none of the bonus features typically found on a DVD.”
