Okay, so it took me less than 15 minutes to download iTunes 7 and purchase a movie (The Brothers Grimm.) The movie is going to take 65 minutes to download. This should get better as time goes on – right now the store is swamped.
First impressions: the movie selections are only OK. Not great. This will hopefully change in the next weeks and months. iTunes 7 seems snappier and more responsive than iTunes 6.5. I like the little blurb that shows how many unread Podcasts I have waiting in the queue.
I also like the new, updated interface. It packs more features in a clean, familiar interface. It will be easier to sort movies and TV shows out from music. iTunes now plays back video better than it did before, which is a relief.
More details will emerge soon!
