Warner Bros. is continuing it's digital commitment by making 200 films available through Guba.com.
In a story from Home Media Retailing, this alliance between the studio and the download-to-own service is the first one between "a domestic-based file sharing service and Warner Bros."
The cost is $1.99 to 'rent' the movies on a 24 hour basis. Consumers can purchase "extra viewing days for reduced fees without the need to download the film again."
Other prices include $9.99 for catalog films "and new releases, available on the same date that DVDs are released in stores, will retail for $19.99. Television shows will retail starting at $1.79 per episode."
The video content "can be downloaded and played on compatible home computers, streamed to the TV and loaded onto portable devices. Users may keep permanent copies of purchased titles, load purchased titles onto portable devices, and stream purchased and rented content through their home network."
"With Guba, more Internet users will be able to legally and securely buy and rent our films and TV series. Warner is committed to providing our programming to fans when, where and how they want it, and this deal is another example of our commitment to do that." Said Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President of distribution, Jim Wuthrich.
