Sony to start digitally distributing movies before they come out on DVD




Apple made a big splash at MacWorld this year when it announced that all of the major Hollywood studios had signed up to release movies through its iTunes store. However, many of the studios refused to let Apple rent the movies the same day they were released on DVD.

This changed a few months later as both Apple and the studios realized that people wanted to rent new release when they were actually well, new.

Now Sony is taking the next step.







interesting. guess it’s not such a bad thing to have a finger on the pulse of many different markets
