Wal-Mart video download service coming this week

Posted on Tuesday, November 28 2006 @ 17:37:21 CET by

It looks like just about every big company wants its own online music or video store these days. Today Wal-Mart announced its own video download service will be available this week with an "exclusive offer". Wal-Mart will give consumers who buy the physical Superman Returns DVD the option to download the video online. The offer sounds pretty weird IMO, if you already have the DVD there isn't really a reason to download the movie, right?

Additionally, it's not even free. Wal-Mart wants to make you pay twice for your movie:
With the purchase of the "Superman Returns" physical DVD, Wal-Mart said customers can also choose from three video download format options -- $1.97 for portable devices, $2.97 for PCs/laptops, and $3.97 for both portable players and PC/laptops.

According to Wal-Mart, the Superman Returns physical DVD will come with a video download "feature sticker" on the cover. Customers will then have to log on to walmart.com/superman, enter the promotional code, and select their desired download format.

Once users create an account and install the video download manager, the purchase completes and the movie download process begins. Wal-Mart said customers can also begin watching the movie while it downloads.
