Apple adds option to "download later" movies from iTunes in the cloud


Don't know about you, but I find this news post, really interesting for my multimedia needs. It looks like Apple recently added a new option for iTunes purchases on both Mac and iOS devices running iTunes 11 and iOS 6 or later. So from now on, everytime you purchase content that includes a large download, such as movies or seasons of TV shows, iTunes will allow users to complete the purchase and opt to download the file at a later time. As noted by Macworld, Apple outlined the new option, which presents users with a dialog to “Download” now or download “Later”.

If you select the new “Later” option the purchased content will be added to your “Purchased” tab in iTunes in the Cloud. Be careful though, since this means that the aforementioned feature is only available to those in countries that support iTunes in the Cloud (full list here). According to Apple’s knowledge base article, the option applies to content including: "TV seasons, season passes, movie bundles, music box sets, or individual movies and TV episodes".
