Amazon Unbox takes the lead

Filed under: Interesting,Reference — Rohit Aggarwal @ 2:51 am

Amazon Unbox is working now. Amazon launches the online video store just a week before the expected launch of similar service by Apple.

Techcrunch gives brief about it:

We covered early previews of the site last month. Shows may be purchased or rented. For purchases, TV episodes are $1.99, most movies are between $8 and $15, some are $20. Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing is $36. (Update – that’s been changed to $16.) Rentals are $1.99 or $2.99.”

Interesting part of the story is:”Early reports are coming in that available DRM stripping software is working on Unbox content. Not an endorsement here, just a note.”

Earlier there were news for similar offering from Apple- Washington Post

I also came across a digital video subscription service- 4flix.net through which one can download movies without the hassle of DRM. Hmmm! intersting. via Macobserver
