Film downloads from BT

From the end of July film buffs will be able to buy and download films on the same day they are released on DVD. From 31st July, 150 Universal titles will be made available online by BT. Consumers will pay to download two digital files to a computer and portable device, and also receive a DVD of the film in the post. In the Autumn BT launches BT Vision, a pay-for-view TV and film service. Customers do not have to subscribe on a monthly basis, and they will be able to download films via a Philips set-top box to watch on their TVs. Dan Marks, CEO BT Vision said: “This is a very exciting deal that breaks new ground in the entertainment industry. Customers increasingly expect to enjoy entertainment when, where and how they want it and this agreement will help to make that possible. We are delighted to have concluded this groundbreaking deal with NBC Universal that enables BT customers to watch some of the world’s best entertainment titles through their TV, PC or portable player and choose whether to own or rent. They can also receive a DVD in the post as part of the package!”
