No ‘Shame’ for iTunes13 Apr, 2012 By: John Latchem
While most digital copies of films from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment can be downloaded to either iTunes or Android platforms, an exception is the April 17 release Shame.
Because of Apple’s policy of not carrying ‘NC-17’ movies on iTunes, the Shame digital copy included with the Blu-ray combo pack is compatible only with Android. The copy still can be loaded onto Android phones through a Macintosh computer.
Shame, starring Michael Fassbender as a man dealing with sex addiction, was rated ‘NC-17’ by the MPAA for explicit sexual content. According to Apple’s website, “The iTunes Store does not accept adult films, films rated ‘NC-17’ or higher, or unrated films that could have received those ratings.”
