Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 09 Sep 2002 15:47

Online movie service CinemaNow has signed a deal with AOL TimeWarner-owned Warner Bros. to bring Warner's movies to the Net through its existing online service.
Deal includes new hit movies, such as Harry Potter and several old-time favourites. Prices for CinemaNow's service vary between $2.99 to $3.99 a movie. Service has its own DRM system and delivers movies to broadband users within couple of hours, depending on user's connection speed. Service, which currently includes movies from various indie film makers, claims that it has one million unique users a month and that it delivers over 2 million movies each month.

Warner Bros. is also about to launch its own similiar service by end of this year, a joint venture between major movie studios, dubbed as MovieLink.
