Same day burning now possible
A company called CinemaNow, is breaking out some new technology with its same-day release of the new Fast and the Furious DVD.
Online movie service CinemaNow on Tuesday said it will offer a version of Universal Picture’s “The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift” that customers can download onto a blank DVD the same day it is available in stores.
The “download-to-burn” Web release on the same day the DVD lands in stores is a first for a major Hollywood studio. Until recently, studios have been reluctant to offer downloads to “burn,” or copy, for fear of piracy and because doing so might cannibalize retail sales in the $24 billion home DVD market.
