Warner to Offer Movies on Facebook

Is this a sign of studios trying to bypass Netflix and Amazon VOD services? I kinda doubt it, but it’s a smart play if your Warner anyways, offering yet another way to get direct money from consumers. It’ll be interesting to see Netflix’s response.

Fans who “Like” The Dark Knight will be able to use their Facebook credits to rent the title for 30 credits or $3. Currently only U.S. consumers can rent movies. Warner plans on adding more films in the coming months, with a purchase option promised as well.
