There aren't any pay per movie new release steaming services on Apple TV other than iTunes. Not VUDU, not Amazon, not Google Play, not CinemaNow, not Flixster, not Fandango.
Most of these are available on Chromecast, Roku, Xbox One. That is, when they can go on a platform under neutral terms, they do so.
To be fair, Amazon's Fire TV is no picknick and none of these services, other than Amazon itself, work on the FireTV. So Apple is not the only vendor playing hardball.
In short: We may say all those services 'chose' not to put their apps on the ATV but the unanimity of it suggests there are onerous terms on Apple's part since no one is finding the situation acceptable.
