CinemaNow reels in Fox

Netco pacts with studio to sell movies

CinemaNow has signed its fifth studio for download-to-own movies and only its second to put TV shows in the mix.

Netco has pacted with Fox to sell permanent copies of its movies for prices ranging from $9.99 for library titles to $19.95 for new releases.

It also will sell several Fox-produced TV shows, including “24,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

“24” and “Sunny” are the first currently airing TV shows CinemaNow offers. It recently started selling library TV shows from Warner Bros.

It also sells permanent copies of pics from WB, Sony, Disney, Sony, and Lionsgate, its minority owner, while they are in the homevideo window.

Competitor Movielink sells permanent copies of pics from every major studio except Disney. Both companies rent films online from every major studio while in the pay-per-view window.
