If you have an Apple TV, you can now dive into your iTunes Extras on your biggest screen — and in the not-too-distant-future you'll be able to do that on an iOS 8equipped iPhone or iPad as well. The fun part of the Apple TV getting iTunes Extras is that the feature was remotely enabled a week after last week's Software Update 6.2. Now when hitting play on a movie with iTunes Extras on Apple TV, users are presented with the option to either play said movie or to jump into said movie's Extras.
The new iTunes Extras for HD Movies also change how iTunes Extras work. Instead of downloading as a separate package, the Extras are now streamed from the web. Considering that the Apple TV only has enough onboard storage to serve as a buffer, that's a good thing — it also means you get to start into your Extras faster, instead of waiting for the complete package to download.
Not all movies with iTunes Extras have them available for Apple TV just yet, though Apple says that they will be a free and automatic addition as they are made available. Movies with support for iTunes Extras on the Apple TV display an applicable badge so you know.
iTunes Extras will also be available on iPhone and iPad for the first time when iOS 8 is released later this fall.
