The service will let you download two copies of the film – one for play on a computer and one sized for play on a portable media player. Additionally, a DVD copy will be mailed to your residence as well. The movies will be available starting at midnight on the day of release, so you could actually have a copy of the movie ready to view before store doors even open. The downside? Price. New releases will cost £19.99, which translates to $35 American. Older releases are more reasonably priced at £9.99, or $17.50 American. However, this service is providing a service that has been desired for sometime, even if pricey. Let’s hope that our friends in England convince Universal to bring the service stateside, and lower the price as well.
