Will iTunes ever offer Blue Ray movies or TV shows?

No one offers "Blu-Ray" for streaming or for download over the internet - at least not legally. No ones got the money/time to provide for 25-35GB downloads.

There is also, no player for OS X that will play back Blu-Ray or HD-DVD that I've seen. One of the many reasons my HTPC is a Win7 machine.

There are other codecs for HD video, though, and iTunes, Amazon, Vudu and others do offer HD content for sale.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Yes, and I try Linux every once in awhile. But like a lot of other folks, I've been using the MS OS since around MSDOS 5 or so. You'll find a lot of us here that use Macs alongside their Windows and/or Linux boxes. We are an Apple site, so we have a few semi-fanatical Apple lovers .

I'm one of those that likes OS X for my primary personal computing, but I like Windows for some things such as HTPC use.

We've got those that like the ATV, meanwhile I've got a Roku HD box being delivered tomorrow. And I may yet end up getting one of the ATVs at only $100 too.

(I do love my iPad, I must admit - except for that one change they just made.)
