Despite its non-appearance at Apple's Tuesday event, yet more evidence suggesting the company plans an online movie service through iTunes has emerged.

AppleInsider is in possession of a survey that's being distributed by a Californian market research firm. The survey asks for answers to a number of questions related to a "potential iTunes movie service".

"This iTunes service would provide access to 1,000 movies on demand which can be downloaded to your computer and, in turn, to your video iPod if you have one, or even your television if it is connected to your computer," the survey is reported to say.

Additional details claim the service would be available for a monthly subscription fee, and users would be able to watch movies as many times as they liked, with more films added every month. Surveyed people are asked to rate proposed features of the service on a scale of 1-10.

An a la carte movie service is also discussed, AppleInsider reveals, rubbing its well-informed crystal ball to declare: "It won't be long before Apple will once again draw the spotlight in order to bear its latest fruits",

At the end of Tuesday's event, Apple CEO Steve Jobs warned, "we'll see you all real soon", the report notes.
