Warner Brothers has moved to expand their movie offering on Facebook, however Australians will be blocked from getting access to the new content.Last night the company said that they have taken its Facebook movie rental service beyond its initial one-movie trial phase. In addition to the originally offered The Dark Knight, users can now rent five more movies. The more recent releases are also slightly dearer at 40 Facebook credits, or $4, to rent Inception, Life as We Know It and Yogi Bear, on the site.
Also new are the first two installments in the Harry Potter series, though these older titles cost $3 each to rent. The same rules apply, with users getting unlimited views for 48 hours, full-screen playback and the option of resuming the movie where they left off.
No explanation has been given by Warner as to why Australians are being denied access to their movies.
