Movies news and announcements.

We have the following updates for your movie content:

Digital Only Release Date

Digital Only has been added as an option to the Release Date field in iTunes Connect. This field is used to specify the release date of a movie that was not released theatrically. You can use this field for a worldwide date or a date for a specific territory. Note that you can supply either a Digital Only date or Theatrical but not both. A worldwide date is required.

Batch Spreadsheet 4K/HDR Update

The batch spreadsheet template now supports 4K Availability Date. This field is used to control when your 4K/HDR titles will go live in the iTunes Store. The date is optional and should be the present date or a date in the future.

Make sure to follow the Spreadsheet Validation requirements when uploading a batch spreadsheet.
