CinemaNow, Intel bring HD movies to PCs
October 10, 2011
CinemaNow, Best Buy’s digital entertainment service, and Intel are giving US customers the ability to enjoy a larger library of premium HD content on their PCs. For the first time, CinemaNow will offer 1080p HD movies for rental and purchase on 2nd generation Intel Core processor-based PCs with Intel Insider technology.
Previously, only standard-definition movies had been available from CinemaNow on the PC. CinemaNow has now added several hundred new releases and popular catalogue titles in HD from 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros for people who have Intel Insider on their desktop, laptop or Ultrabook. This is in addition to the 15,000 movies and TV episodes CinemaNow already boasts in its regular catalogue. HD content offerings from CinemaNow and Intel Insider are expected to grow as more new releases and archived titles are added weekly.
