Extended Knowledge About iTunes HD Movies
720p & 1080p HD Movies on iTunes Store
Actually there are two levels of HD movies in iTunes. Earlier when iTunes Store started offering content in HD, it only supported 720p. And later it has been upgraded to 1080p. So currently you will find two versions of HD quality for most movies in iTunes.
The differences between 720p and 1080p is that the former HD standard offers a 1280 x 720-pixel resolution, while the latter packs in 1920 x 1080 pixels. Needless to say, 1080p images contain more information and more pixels, leading to a more detailed and high-quality image. And yes, it will take longer time to download.
How to Download 720p or 1080p HD Movies from iTunes
Currently not all Apple devices play 1080p content except the Apple TV 3rd, iPad 3rd/4th and iPhone 5. So Apple gives users a choice of which kind of HD content they'd prefer to download, 720p or 1080p. To do this, you need to change some settings in iTunes before you downloading the HD movies, as it shows below:
1. Make sure you're running iTunes 10.6 or higher.
2. Open iTunes "Preferences" and click on "Store".
3. Look for the option for "When downloading High Definition video, prefer:" and click the drop-down. Select "720p or 1080p".
