    Default Warner Bros. to start German file-sharing service

    Warner Bros. said on Monday it would soon begin selling movies and television shows in Germany, Austria and Switzerland using a peer-to-peer network, embracing the very technology that has rattled the entertainment industry.

    Starting in March, the new service called In2Movies will allow paying consumers to download a limited selection of Warner Bros. films and TV programs, including "Batman Begins" and "The O.C.," from central servers and from other users who have the desired files.

    Such networks, widely known as P2P, are blamed for rocking the music industry, as teenagers around the world easily swapped songs with each other using services like Napster and Kazaa. Credit and More Info: Yahoo News

    Nice to see some corporations that can read the writting on the wall,
    back several years ago when broadband was first starting to take off, a
    technical conference pointed out that all this would happen, with or without
    the entertainment industries cooperation.

    Is downloading TV shows off the Internet illegal too? If it is, then I got some real problems with the law

    I mean, it's the same as TiVo'ing it and capturing to an AVI...

    "Our initial efforts will focus on the German market, but in the months ahead we will leverage this technology to better serve markets around the world," Tsujihara said.

    Films will be made available to registered users of the In2Movies service on the same day they are released on DVD in the German language. In addition to the studio's blockbusters, In2Movies plans to sell local programming and material supplied by third parties"

    So what do you think the odds of them doing that here are? I don't think I would sign up unless the quality was there..including 5.1 audio...I gotta have that...but you are right TL...for NIght Court it would be worth it.... Hey do you remember when Bull was hit by lighting and thought Art was God...'Our Father who is Art in heaven'
