Canadian media company E1 is offering its film and TV content via iTunes online stores in Canada, the US and the UK. The company's key launch title is the blockbuster Twilight, which it distributed theatrically in Canada and the UK.

'We are excited to be able to offer film and TV enthusiasts the opportunity to rent or purchase E1 content on iTunes,' said E1 president of filmed entertainment Patrice Theroux in a statement. 'We are expanding our digital offering on a multi territory basis and with iTunes we can provide consumers easy access to our library of films and television programs.'

The selection will vary from territory to territory, reflecting the company's licencing rights. For example, Canadian users can access such films as Fugitive Pieces, Global Metal and Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, while US users can tap the documentary Our Brand Is Crisis and the Sundance TV series Terminal City. UK users can access a number of children's titles handled by the former Contender Entertainment.

E1's content library includes more than 3,700 feature films, 2,700 hours of original television programming and 15,000 music tracks.
