Quick Run Down of Movie Distribution Services via Download

Wal-mart recently joined the fray in the Movie Download business and Target has taken the Movie industry to task over the fairness in pricing of Movie Downloads so we're providing a quick list of some of the other movers in this Space.

  1. Wal-Mart's movie download just launched this week with the release of Superman returns available in DVD and download from Wal-Mart
  2. Amazon Unbox service will allow downloads of about 1 hour of programming.
  3. Apple iTunes has been at this for quite sometime and can provide downloads of everything from a video podcast to a two hour movie.
  4. CinemaNow provides full feature movie download services.
  5. Movielink has been around for quite some time and is possibly one of the oldest of the movie download services, offering downloads for purchase and for rental.
  6. Guba works with Windows media player or RealPlayer and features full feature movie downloads.

There are many more in the short film or amateur film category, which also might take a swing at the big leagues before long and services from Blockbuster, Hollywood video and Netflix are all expected soon.
