The iTunes Store in Germany features iTunes’ ease of use, which makes discovering and enjoying movies as simple and easy as buying music on iTunes has always been.

With iTunes Movie Rentals, once a movie is rented, it starts downloading from the iTunes Store directly to iTunes or Apple TV, and users with a fast Internet connection can start viewing the movie in seconds.
