Apple Still Dominates Movie Downloads - Itproportal

Posted: 08 Feb 2011 02:14 AM PST

Apple's iTunes service continues to fend off competition from Microsoft, Wal-Mart and Sony to lead the online movie downloads market, a new report has revealed.

According to a report released by market research company iSuppli, of all the money spent on purchasing and downloading movies via electronic sell through (EIS) and
Internet video on demand (IVOD) in 2010, 64.5 per cent was on Apple's iTunes platform.

Despite Apple's impressive market lead over its competitors, the company still saw a 9 per cent drop in the amount of money consumers spent buying movies on iTunes. In 2009, Apple's iTunes held a market share of 74.4 per cent in the online movie downloads market.

Arash Amel, research director, digital media, for IHS, said in a statement: "Apple faced serious competition from Microsoft's Zune Video and Sony Corp.'s PlayStation Store, as well as from Amazon and—most significantly—Wal-Mart. However, iTunes managed to grow because of the introductions of the iPad and the second-generation Apple TV."

While Amanda Knox's lawyers attempt to prevent the Lifetime film — starring Hayden Panettiere as their client — from coming out, the 23-year-old has told her stepfather that the movie's trailer made her want to vomit.

"She was so amazingly shocked by [the trailer for the movie]," Knox's stepfather, Chris Mellas, told ABC News. "She said she literally started hyperventilating. She felt like she was going to throw up."

Amanda Knox lawyers try to block Lifetime film

Knox's lawyers, Carlo Dallo Vedova and Luca Maori, said Saturday that they had sent letters to Lifetime warning the network they were prepared to go to U.S. court to try to sequester the film if it isn't canceled. They also demanded that the trailer removed from the cable channel's website. (It has since been removed.)

Knox and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted in 2009 of sexually assaulting and murdering Meredith Kercher in the apartment she shared with Knox in Perugia, Italy. Kercher was stabbed to death on Nov. 1, 2007.

Knox and Sollecito were sentenced to 26 and 25 years in prison, respectively. Both deny the allegations and their appeals trial is under way.

Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy is scheduled to air Monday, Feb. 21.
