Apple updates iTunes with 7.6.1 promises .99 cent movie rentals


Apple released a minor update on Thursday to iTunes. The 7.6.1 update fixes a few minor bugs, and improves compatibility between Apple TV 2.0 and iTunes.

Apple has also informed subscribers to its newsletter that it will be offering one rental movie at .99 cents each week. The first film available at this discounted rate is The Hours. The .99 discount will change each Thursday and run through the following Monday giving you a bit of time to download the movie.

This is the first time Apple has offered any sort of discount through its video store.
