Verizon Online Partners with Movielink on Downloads

Movielink and Verizon launched a co-branded movie downloading service providing Verizon Online's consumer DSL and FiOS Internet Service customers access to Movielink's extensive film library.

Movielink is a joint venture of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Studios and Warner Bros. Studios. Movielink content offerings are drawn from the current releases and vast libraries of those studios as well as from those of Walt Disney Pictures, Miramax, Artisan and others, on a non-exclusive basis.

The new service offers a full library of titles, including a special selection of hit films for 99 cents or less from Movielink. Verizon customers can purchase and download licensed movies offered by Movielink and store them on their hard drives for up to 30 days. The movies may be watched on a PC, a television connected to the PC, or a laptop computer during a 24-hour viewing period.
