The movie service will provide ‘New Releases’ (in the video on demand new release window) charged at $5.95 per film and a great library of other all time favourites charged at $3.95.
There will also continue to be a small number of films available for customers to sample at no charge (funded by sponsors).
CEO of Hybrid Television Services, Robbee Minicola said, “The launch of the Blockbuster Movies on Demand service establishes a key milestone for us; the ability to enjoy DVD-quality movie content with true 5.1 channel surround sound downloaded straight into the living room with a TiVo media device. This service demonstrates you can have exactly what you want, when you want it…without any need for a monthly subscription fee.”
While users who have an Internet service with Internode will be able to download movies without paying additional data charges to their ISP, those connected to other ISPs must make sure that they are signed up to a large data plan.
