Wurld Media's peer-to-peer service, Peer Impact, has struck a deal with another studio to provide TV and movie downloads on its site, writes MediaBuyerPlanner. The company announced last week that titles from Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros. Entertainment are now available. The announcement follows Peer Impact's previously announced agreement with NBC Universal to include its catalog of movie and television event titles for on-demand rental.
Earlier last week, another entertainment site, Guba, announced a deal to also show Warner Bros. Entertainment content. At Guba, users can buy and rent, on a download basis, movies and television shows online.
Part of Guba's announcement was that it was the first U.S. video-sharing community to distribute licensed Warner Bros. Entertainment content online. A distinction that, technicaly, is true.
TV shows such as The Loop, Firefly, The Dukes Of Hazzard and Babylon Five can be downloaded for 24-hour viewing periods with prices starting at $0.99 per episode at Peer Impact. Movie rentals are also available and include current and library titles for $2.99 to $3.99 through the service.
More than two hundred of Warner Bros. Entertainment's latest movie releases are available from Guba, including Syriana, Good Night and Good Luck, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Everything is Illuminated, as well as catalog titles such as The Matrix, Batman Forever and Best in Show. TV programming includes Babylon 5, Dukes of Hazzard, The Flintstones and The Jetsons. Rental prices start at $1.99 per movie for unlimited views during a 24- hour period.
