iTunes to house FOX’s award screeners for SAG

Fox has announced that this year the award screeners for the Screen Actors Guild awards will be placed on iTunes. Award screeners are copies of films given to the Screen Actors Guild prior to the awards to they could vote for winners. Traditionally, studios send out copies of films on watermarked DVD’s but this year, they worked with Apple to place them on iTunes.

The films Black Swan, Conviction, and 127 Hours will be available for the nearly 100,000 Screen Actors Guild members via iTunes from January 7th until January 28th. The SAG members will be given special redemption codes to download their movies, which they can then play on their supported device (Mac, PC, iOS Device, Apple TV etc.).

Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Services Eddy Cue had this to say:

We’ve worked with Fox to bring their films to SAG members in an innovative way. We think the voting members will enjoy being able to view these films however they choose, whether on their iPad, iPhone or with Apple TV.
Fox’s press release is after the break.
