Download-to-burn offer from CinemaNow

Online movie service CinemaNow has announced that users will be able to download and burn DVD of Universal Picture’s “The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift”. This download will be available the same day as in stores and will be priced at $9.99. CinemaNow had launched this service in July but only for old titles.

This will be for the first time that a major Hollywood studio will release a movie on internet and stores on the same day.

Increasing pressure created by independent content creators at Youtube et al, as well as the launch of Amazon Unbox and movie downloads from Apple through its iTunes service is having a profound effect on the entertainment industry. Looking forward to intense competition and hopefully low prices.
