iTunes cloud lacks Fox, Universal movies; 3G app cap at 50MB

iTunes in the Cloud and 3G App Store get new limit

A studio veteran divulged Wednesday that the iTunes in the Cloud access coming hand-in-hand with the new Apple TV and iTunes 10.6 doesn't include Fox and Universal. Either was tangled in HBO deals that gave the premium cable network brief exclusives that conflicted with the re-download rights, AllThingsD heard. HBO confirmed the issue but expected to find "common ground" that would clear full access.

All other major studios are known to be onboard with cloud re-downloads.

Simultaneously, Apple has significantly raised the ceiling on App Store downloads while on 3G and now 4G. Previously at 20MB, the cap now goes up to 50MB before downloads have to use Wi-Fi. The expansion wasn't directly explained, although support for HSPA+ and LTE data makes these downloads easier to bear both for the user and the provider.
