Forum Question: iTunes Store Theatrical Trailers

Hi Gary,

Thanks for the great podcasts and all the wonderful tips.

I love the movie trailers on iTunes, but there are two things I can’t figure out how to do:

1. Find old ones. After they fall off the display of the 30 they show, there doesn’t seem to be a way to find them. Search doesn’t work.

2. It would make the most sense for there to be a video podcast of them, that I could then subscribe to, and then not risk missing any.

Can either of those two things be done?

Thanks.

    Are you viewing them inside of iTunes? Try going to http://trailers.apple.com/ instead. You can see a lot more than 30 there, plus you can search for them.
    As for a podcast, that would be up to Apple to create. One issue might be file size as few people would want to automatically get the huge files that make up these HD trailers, and movie companies probably don’t want their trailers compressed to a more reasonable size because it would hurt the quality. Seems to me I have seen trailer podcasts before, but they have never been comprehensive and you will not see the trailers in full quality as it would be a huge bandwidth cost.

    Thanks, Gary. I didn’t realize until now that I could download from trailers.apple.com into my iPhone. That’s great.

    I’m a big fan of the TED video podcast, and was hoping Apple would do the equivalent with their trailers.

    Thanks again.
