Apple announces iCloud, no TV or Movies showcased – disappointed?

When the WWDC 2011 keynote kicked off yesterday many of us were already aware of the products Apple would be showcasing, though they were not fully aware of what to expect from each product. With the announcements came a full explanation and the details of the features that would be included.

Out of the three main Apple products that were on show which were Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and the iCloud, the one which caught most of the viewer’s expectations was the iCloud. In the build up to the conference the rumor mill was working overtime.

We previously reported that the iCloud, which was expected to be an online music service, would also include movies and TV shows. As WWDC got closer concerns were raised as to whether Apple would get the rights in time for it.

However as the events unraveled yesterday it soon became clear that movies and TV shows would not feature leaving some people disappointed. According to the article at BroadbandTVNews the fact that these ingredients are missing explains how difficult it is to make deals with the participating studios.
