Having just rolled out TV shows in the Australian iTunes store, it’s no great surprise that Apple is also hoping to have movies available to Australian buyers within a month, as a story at APC (written by yours truly) confirms. With many movie files easily topping a gigabyte in size, that makes the strategies discussed in our recent guide to minimising costs for iTunes downloads even more essential. If you’re a serious movie buff, right now it also makes iiNet particularly appealing as an ISP. (Shot from Tropic Thunder from PR Newswire)


  • Another reason to have a look at iiNet is that they’ve recently beefed up their download quotas. It doesn’t happen automatically – you need to change your account, but it can be done without cost.

  • $70 for 150gb with TPG (With a static IP) – Last I checked, iinet couldnt get remotely close to this. I’d love to switch to iinet but I need a big quota and they cant deliver that.
