Effective Tuesday, some Disney films are available as downloads for sale at CinemaNow; the deal includes releasing films the day they come out on DVD for relatively similar price. The online movie service began digital sell-throughs in April following deals with Sony Pictures, MGM and Lionsgate.
Even more interesting, CinemaNow president Bruce Eisen told HR the site is close to offering portability and will give a free portable download to anyone who buys a movie in the interim.
Variety: Disney may have been waiting for portability and is likely to sign with Movielink when that service is closer to launching its portable service later this year. Still in waiting: burning to DVDs.
