CinemaNow and Movielink now selling downloads of major studio movies

from citizentimes.com:

JULY 4, 2006

The DVD has been a hit with movie fans because it delivers both convenience and quality at a reasonable price. But in the future, all movies could be downloaded at home, eliminating the need for discs

Selection: “The Hills Have Eyes,” “8 Below” and “Syriana” ($19.95 each) became available the same day they arrived on DVD. CinemaNow has more than 370 download-to-own major studio titles, including “Rumor Has It,” “Firewall” and “Chicken Little.” Older films, such as “Spider-Man 2” and “Sophie’s Choice,” are as low as $9.99.

What you need: A Windows XP PC with Windows Media Player 10, Internet Explorer 6.0 and a broadband connection of at least 300 kilobits per second.

What they promise: Typical download times of one hour to 90 minutes. You can usually begin watching minutes into the downloading process and can watch an unlimited number of times. CinemaNow movie files can be burned onto DVDs and played on up to three PCs with Windows Media Player.
