    [news=http://themeparks.universalstudios.com/hollywood/website/images/tickets/logo-universal.gif]Universal Pictures International plans to debut the first “download to own” movie service in the United Kingdom, allowing customers to download digital versions of blockbuster movies for keeps when they purchase a DVD of the movie.

    Starting in April, the media and entertainment company, in conjunction with U.K. DVD distributor LoveFilm, will offer customers a £19.99 ($34.83) package of products that includes a DVD, a copy to view on a portable DVD player, as well as two digital downloads for PC or laptop.

    The first movie to be made available for download will be King Kong, starting on April 10.


    Shares of the studio’s parent company, Vivendi Universal, rose $0.44 to $35.05 in recent trading.

    it's a good idea (insane price). the more these types of legit things grow, the more they will think all the filesharers have "given up" and declare victory.
