AOL to offer movie downloads from all the major players
And by major players I mean, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. But, from reading the release, not only will AOL be offering movie downloads but TV show downloads as well. Will AOL become the new downloadable movie destination? I believe their built in AOL audience gives them a strong case for becoming the leader. This is what most of these current online video providers (YouTube, Cinemanow, etc...) have most likely dreamed up. Good play by AOL. Here are some specifics:
+ Prices for movies will range from $9.99 to $19.99.
+ After purchase and download, "movies can be viewed offline as well as on other PCs and compatible portable devices". What I don't see is any specific verbiage about burning these movies to a DVD. Can you? If so, how many times?
There's also more information on what company will be providing what in the release which you can peruse here
