Sony planning to offer movie downloads...again

jtroutman jtroutman writes  |  about 7 years ago

jtroutman (121577) writes "Sony has announced that it plans to make its most popular movies available for download. "We want to set business models, pricing models, distribution models like Jobs did for music, but for the film industry," said Michael Arrieta, the senior vice-president of Sony Pictures.
