First Movie Appears on iTunes Store

The first indication of Apple’s plans to sell full-length feature films through the iTunes Music Store surfaced on Tuesday, with a Disney Channel original movie discovered for sale through the service. For $1.99 — the same price as TV shows and music videos — users can purchase “High School Musical.”

The movie runs 1 hour and 39 minutes, and weighs in at just under 490MB. Apple has reportedly been in talks with major Hollywood studios about licensing films, which it would begin selling in conjunction with the launch of a touch-screen video iPod. Even if the rumors are accurate, however, it’s not clear when such an offering would debut.
