Best Buy embraces digital delivery of home video

This deal makes sense if your Best Buy, and an overwhelming victory for CinemaNow which has really had a difficult time regaining space in the online streaming space which has been dominated by Netflix and others. Best Buy makes decent hardware at lower costs, which guarantees this service will be in quite a few homes.


The software making it possible to shop CinemaNow’s video library will be included on all the Web-connected devices sold in Best Buy’s more than 1,000 U.S. stores. That means consumers who buy flat-panel TVs, Blu-ray players, personal computers and mobile phones from Best Buy would be able to get downloads of videos the same day they are released on DVDs.
