Universal, Fox Studios to Join iCloud Soon | News | The Mac Observer

Universal Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox, the two major holdouts from Apple’s new movie component of iCloud, may soon be available for Apple customers following an agreement with HBO, according to the Wall Street Journal.

During Apple’s announcement last Wednesday, movies were added to Apple’s iCloud service, joining TV Shows and Music, allowing users to stream films purchased from iTunes (as well as select digital copies obtained via purchases of physical DVDs and Blu-Rays) to any iOS 5 device, including Apple TV. While the service launched with support from major studies such as Lions Gate, Sony, Disney, Paramount, and Warner Bros., notably absent were Universal and Fox due to licensing agreements that those studios had in place with Time Warner-owned premium network HBO.
