itunes tvIf the rumors are true, you will soon be able to download TV shows and movies directly to your iPhone and iPod Touch.

While nothing is set in stone yet, rumors are swirling all around the Internet of what we can expect from the next iteration of the iPhone and its accompanying software.  The majority of the rumors have focused on the hardware aspects of the new iPhone, but not much has been learned of what the actual software powering the device may deliver in the ways of tweaks.

Open Salon thinks they may have stumbled across something, and they have numerous pictures to back up their claims.  It is a tad odd that they are said to have been found by following an advertisement in an application, but the images do appear legitimate to everyone that has commented on them, and they even appear to be a work in progress.

This seems like a natural extension for Apple, and a bit surprising that it hasn’t been available before now.  It will be interesting to see if these downloads will be allowed over carriers cellular networks, although my personal guess would be a big “no” to that.  While it would still be somewhat useful over Wi-Fi (say while travelling and you want to add a movie during an airport layover), it would still be somewhat slow compared to doing it on your computer when you are near it.  A reenue stream is a revenue stream, though, and it would be silly for Apple not to offer this to their customers at some point.

The next iPhone is expected to be announced on June 8th at Apple’s WWDC event, so that will probably be the day we find out if this new software feature is legitimate or not also.
