Coming Soon from Amazon: Unboxed Videos

Amazon_video

It looks like Amazon is becoming a video competitor to Apple’s iTunes.

Hollywood is a little leery of falling into the same situation the
music industry did — both needing Steve Jobs, but not happy with his
terms of the deal.

C/Net  writes:

"To this point, digital movies have yet to attract a large audience. It takes
hours in some cases for a film to be fully downloaded, and the quality isn’t any
better than a DVD, even though the costs are often the same.

Hollywood is eager to see how Amazon fares at selling downloadable films, an
entertainment executive said last month. Unlike the companies that have already
begun distributing digital movies, Amazon has a long track record of selling
videos online."
