Starz to Launch Movie Download Service
A Reuters newswire article by Kenneth Li, via Yahoo! News, reports that:
Cable network Starz Entertainment Group LLC said it plans to launch an Internet movie download service on Tuesday, backed by partnerships with Microsoft and Sony, amid a race to offer more videos over high-speed Internet connections.
The service, called Vongo, follows the debut of Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes video service, which ignited interest across the media sector to make more video programming available at any time and anywhere outside of the living room.
