iTunes in the Cloud for movies is finally available outside of the United States. Apple has just rolled out the service to over 35 new countries. iTunes Movies in the Cloud gives users the ability to access previously purchased movies and TV shows right from iCloud on the Apple TV.
IceFilms XBMC addon has been recently updated to version 1.1.12 that fixes minus.com resolver for metadata zips, adds ShareBees user login support (does not detect free user vs premium as of now), fixes JumboFile and ShareBees resolver for site changes, updates VidHog resolver to check for ‘server in maintenance mode’ msgs and disables ‘Video Seeking’ option (not needed for current sources and has been causing problems).
IceFilms is back and ready to increase the “awesome sauce” of your Apple TV! If you are one of our many fans with XBMC installed on their Apple TVs, you are likely aware of the fact that XBMC has always offered the ability to install third party add-ons. Sadly, this past December, the official XBMC Team took the odd step of closing access to some of XBMC’s most popular add-ons.
Just when it appeared as though these amazing tools would disappear, a new home arrived to connect developers, users, and add-on development. Since moving to XBMCHUB.COM the IceFilms team has been hard at work expanding the abilities and functionalities of it’s add-on and now it is ready, once again, for the prime time.
