AOL sets up camp, classics at MovieFlix

Cyberbiz Brief

America Online will stream four classic or camp films a month for free on its broadband service in a deal with MovieFlix.com.

AOL’s Theater B will tap the MovieFlix library, including Three Stooges shorts and sci-fi pics such as “Teenagers From Outer Space,” “The Crawling Eye” and “Rocketship X-M.” More notable films will be made available in coming months such as Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” Frank Sinatra starrer “The Man With the Golden Arm” and George Romero’s “The Night of the Living Dead.”

Announcement is part of AOL efforts to get its tens of millions of subs to upgrade to more expensive high-speed Net connec-tions by offering bundles of exclusive content. The company’s once fast-growing subscriber base continues to erode, dropping by 1 million in the past year.
