Streaming Movies: Best Buy Preparing For A World Without DVDs

Best Buy announced a “a Best Buy-branded offering, available starting early next year,” that will stream “first-run DVDs” online directly to consumers, says the NYT Bits Blog.

“We’re going into this business in a big way,” Mr. Homeister said. “Our goal is to have broad availability in the marketplace, across multiple devices.”

The idea is to allow consumers to pay once for a DVD and then be able to play it “any device: television, Blu-ray disc player, personal computer, handheld media player or smartphone.”
