Netflix Moves One Step Closer To Downloadable Movies
from the one-tiny-step dept
While Netflix and Tivo still haven't confirmed their rumored relationship, Netflix is still pushing forward with getting the other pieces in place for any kind of downloadable video-on-demand offering. They've now signed a deal with Warner Brothers to test movie downloads. Of course, this also demonstrates some of the hassle Netflix has to go through to build such a service. They need to go to each and every studio and convince them that (no, really) if they let Netflix help them offer video on demand it will let them rent more movies, and it won't mean the end of the movie industry because some kid figures out how to break whatever copy protection scheme they agree to use.
