Citizen Kane and Extras Come to iTunes

Posted Thu Sep 8, 2011 at 03:35 PM PDT by Dick Ward

The classic film has come to the iTunes music, movie, and app service.

The thing about streaming movies and digitally distributed content is that typically the only thing you get is the movie itself. All that cool extra content that comes with the Blu-ray is nowhere to be seen. Documentaries, interviews, commentary, and trailers are something that only owners with hard copies get to experience.

It looks like the iTunes download of Citizen Kane may break the mold. In addition to the movie itself, the folks at iTunes say that the release is coming with "Extras." Exactly what that means isn't clear, but if they're delivering the same thing that comes with the Blu-ray, it would be quite an attractive deal indeed.

To celebrate the release of the 70th anniversary edition, iTunes is giving away a copy of the film along with an iPad 2. To enter, simply enter on the Facebook page linked below.
