iTunes 10 revealed with TV show rentals, social networking

By on

Apple Logo GenericiTunes 10 has also been unveiled at this year’s September event, and with this comes a brand new social network that competes with Last.FM. Called Ping, it lets users post thoughts and opinions at what songs they listened to, plus view concert listings and tell the world which ones are you attending.

Okay, it is essentially Last.FM.

The other big news of the announcement was that iTunes will now be getting TV show rentals on iTunes, with the rumoured ABC/Disney family and Fox signing up, but also BBC America.

Episodes are 99c to stream and you will be able to watch it the day after broadcast and on an iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC or on the Apple TV. You have 30 days to start watching it, but you will have 48 hours to finish it after opening it.
