Users of Apple’s iTunes service with South African accounts can now rent or buy movies.

This comes after Apple recently enabled support for iTunes Music in South Africa.

Enthusiasts browsing through the iTunes Store have commented that the selection of films on the local service is still limited compared to its US counterpart.

South Africans also don’t have access to TV series yet and the “Games” category is still not available from the App Store.

Local films such as Leon Schuster’s “Schuks Tshabalala’s Survival Guide to South Africa” and “Semi-Soet” have also been added to the store.

Rental prices as low as R30 and as high as R40 for new HD releases have been spotted.

SA iTunes users can also buy movies from R90. A new HD release such as Brave costs R150.
