Apple Eyeing on Bringing Movie Streaming to iCloud Services

Apple Released the iCloud Services for public yesterday along with the release of the iOS 5 update and Mac OSX Lion 10.7 update yesterday for the users to share music, videos, books, application data and backups, from your Mac and iOS devices in Apple’s cloud with 5GB free storage space and premium upgrade options for more storage space.

You get the cloud storage with lots of storage space and multiple devices connectivity options and other media options,but apple thinking about expanding the services to add some spice to it.According to Los  Angeles Times apple is thinking about going Hollywood with the services and bringing Movies to the iCloud Services.

If the sources are to be believed,they are already in the talks with major hollywood studios to finalize a deal which would eventually allow the consumers of the iCloud service to buy the Movies  via iTunes and access them on any Apple device.The services are expected to begin in the last month of this year or the first quarter of 2012.

This is rather an interesting service concept since having stored digital films in the cloud, instead of allowing the  buyers to manage the digital copy of it  themselves on a computer or other device, will definitely help the users so that they can make it accessible easily anytime anywhere.
