Amazon to start DVD download service?

Posted on Saturday, Mar 11 2006 @ 03:29 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
According to CNET, Amazon is in talks with three Hollywood studios to start a new service that would enable consumers to download movies and TV shows for a free and burn them onto DVDs.
If the advanced negotiations are successfully concluded, Amazon's service would position itself in the media world alongside rivals like Apple Computer's iTunes as a place where people go not just to order goods to be sent by mail, but to instantly enjoy digital wares as well.

So far, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios and Warner Brothers are engaged in the talks, said one person close to the talks who, like the others, asked not to be identified because the negotiations are continuing.
