New Movies, TV on iTunes in April: 'Citizenfour,' Jennifer Aniston's 'Cake,' More
Apple's online store is also offering free digital downloads of the series premieres of 'Sonic Highways' and 'American Odyssey.'
Oscar winners and hopefuls are among the noteworthy iTunes additions this April. The Edward Snowden documentary Citizenfour will be available for digital download on April 24, allowing those who haven't seen or want to own this year's best documentary Oscar winner the chance to do so.
Oscar watchers who were surprised when Jennifer Aniston didn't get the best actress nomination many predicted she would for her work in the movie Cake can also check out that movie via iTunes on April 10.
Other movies making their iTunes debut this month include Kevin Hart and Josh Gad's The Wedding Ringer and high-profile indies Alex of Venice (directed by Chris Messina) and Adult Beginners (starring Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale), which will be available on iTunes the same day they're released in theaters.
On the TV side, iTunes will offer free downloads of the series premieres of Dave Grohl's HBO series Sonic Highways and NBC's American Odyssey (also streaming on Hulu and available for paid download on Amazon).
New episodes of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's The Bible follow-up, A.D., will also be available for download on iTunes as they air on NBC. The same is true of PBS Masterpiece's new British historical miniseries Wolf Hall, starring Homeland alum Damian Lewis as King Henry VIII and Tony winner Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell.
Other shows whose new seasons will be available on iTunes shortly after the episodes air on TV include Inside Amy Schumer and WGN's Salem.
Looking fans who are mourning the cancellation of the HBO series can also download the complete second season on April 20. The most recent full season of Girls will also be available for iTunes digital download that day, as it will be on Amazon.
