In early April I did a post where I mentioned that CinemaNow.com and Movielink were beginning to offer legal downloadable movies for sale.
In April when these sites started movies cost $20-27 a piece and could only be played on a computer or by hooking a computer up directly to a TV.
Well Today the LA Times reports that CinemaNow Inc. has worked with the studios and developed anti-piracy technology that will allow users to burn a copy of the film from their computer to a DVD so that they can watch it on any DVD player. Not just that but the price has dropped to $9.
But because this service is new Cinema Now is offering some not-quite-new-releases first to test the integrity of the anti-piracy software, these include Charlies Angles: Full Throttle, Barbershop, and Scent of a Woman.
Thanks Jon for sending this link my way.
