    Unhappy Moonwalker in iTunes

    Why can't I find Moonwalker in iTunes? Why aren't they releasing it there? What is the reason? It was remastered and released few years ago in HD, so I'm kinda disappointed it's not in iTunes.

    It is there, and in HD, just not in your country. It shows up on my countries iTunes Store - I just looked.

    In which country's iTunes do you see it? As long as it's not in US iTunes, it's the major digital market for Apple, isn't it?

    I swear to God that Moonwalker needs to be released in North America not just on iTunes. It's not fair other continents gets Moonwalker while we North Americans got nothing.

    Moonwalker has never been released on DVD or Bluray in North America. It has only been released on VHS. I don't know how this hasn't been released on a modern format.

    Many of us have this: https://www.amazon.com/Michael-Jacks.../dp/B0030A0ZD4
    It has got a great image and quality.

    Also found this at Wikipedia:
    Because of specific music and film licensing, Moonwalker has never been officially released by Warner Bros, or any other studio, in North America on DVD or Blu-ray.

    I hope one day MJ Estate and Warner Bros. shake hands and solve this issue.

    New Zealand:


    America isn't Apple's only major market from iTunes - far from it. iTunes is rather popular all over the world (but no doubt it's popularity has decreased since streaming became king. Hell even Apple prominently promote their streaming service Apple Music on the iTunes front page now).

    It might not just be between the MJ Estate/Warner Brothers. I haven't seen the film in about 3 years but IIRC it features footage from numerous sources in the first 30 minutes - both during the retrospective but also during the Man in the Mirror opening, I just remember there's footage of Martin Luther King, John Lennon and other historical figures. One of the copyright holders for this material might be the issue here for North America.

    Geographical restrictions when it comes to media is utterly moronic in this day and age. If you want Moonwalker in HD, you can always just buy the blu-ray from Amazon or something, Blu-Ray.com states it's region-free and I looked on my case a few years back for it, didn't see a regional restriction icon on the back.

    Yeah I don't like how Moonwalker never got proper attention in the US.. I always figured this is partially was one of the first signs of US not giving MJ the attention deserved ie. why post Bad tour no more United States tour dates.. (Aside the allegations of course)

    The blu-ray is definitely worth it, seeing MJ at his peak in that quality is amazing.
