CinemaNow adds WB pics, TV

Netco pacts for TV skeins

Continuing its march to sell digital content from every major Hollywood studio, CinemaNow has added films from Warner Bros. to its electronic sell-through business.

In a twist, however, WB will be the first studio to also sell TV shows via the Netco, including “Babylon 5” and “Dukes of Hazzard.” To avoid conflicts with networks, CinemaNow is expected to only sell TV shows that are no longer being produced.

CinemaNow on Wednesday started permanent downloads of pics from Disney and has had pics from Sony and minority owner Lionsgate since April. Users can purchase pics for between $10 and $30, but can’t burn them onto DVD.

Competitor Movielink sells pics from every major studio except Disney and Lionsgate.

WB will also soon start selling and rentings some of its films and TV shows through BitTorrent, the company behind the popular piracy technology, which is building a legit digital content business.
