Miramax to Put Feature Films Online

from the cool dept

Miramax has made a deal with SightSound to experiment with putting feature films online for download. They want to see if people will pay to download a feature film. I think it’s pretty cool that such a major player would do this. Though, you know that it won’t take long before someone cracks the protection scheme and the movies (or should I say “moviez”) are available for free (via Gnutella or something similar) and Miramax and the media freak out. Still, it’s a good first step.
