AOL to Offer Downloads for Movie, TV Shows

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:57 am

Movies and television shows from Paramount Pictures will be available for sale through AOL’s new video portal under a deal announced Monday.

Classics such as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Chinatown” and newer releases like “Mission: Impossible III” will be sold for $9.99 to $19.99 each, comparable to fees at online services CinemaNow, MovieLink and Guba as well as sites operated by MySpace-owner News Corp.

Consumers will own the movies and can transfer them to as many as three other computers or portable devices that support Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Media Player technology.
