iTunes Launches $20 ‘Award Winning’ Movie Bundles Ahead of 90th Academy Awards

by John_A

Following a discount on bundles for movies in the Cloverfield and Mission: Impossible franchises earlier this week, Apple on iTunes has now launched a collection of “Award Winning” film bundles focused on categories from the Academy Awards. The sale is debuting just under one month before the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4.

The categories include Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Picture, and vary from time periods like Classic to Contemporary. Each HD bundle is priced at $19.99, allowing those interested to grab four movies for the price of about two.

There are also a few “Under $10” Oscar film categories lined throughout the iTunes Movies store, broken into sections including “Best Original Screenplay” and “Best Adapted Screenplay.” In the list below you’ll find all of the Award Winning bundles, a few films from the Under $10 categories, and some other recent releases on iTunes that received notable discounts this week.

If you don’t yet have the Apple TV 4K to watch 4K iTunes movies on, don’t forget that DirecTV Now’s sale on the device remains ongoing in 2018 after initially launching last November. With the offer, when you sign up for four months of the streaming TV service at an upfront cost of around $140, you’ll get the 32GB Apple TV 4K for free.
