Free holiday videos
has announced that dozens of Christmas movies, cartoons and television shows are available for download to both personal computers and the iPod video. A selection of shorter titles are available at no cost, allowing consumers to freely add classic holiday video content to their new video iPods while sampling the high quality of 4Flix.Net's advanced video encoding. Visitors can also subscribe to a free video podcast featuring Christmas videos throughout the month of December. Prices for the remaining catalog of available works match the iTunes Music Store's introductory price of $2 each.
"As the saying goes, 'Content is king', but customers are starving for convenient, family-friendly, DRM-free video" says Dave Holst, founder of 4Flix.Net. "We want to help break the 'content logjam' by providing an affordable, safe and simple way for new iPod owners to 'feed their need'. For folks without a new iPod, our video files play great on any Mac or PC with QuickTime 7 installed. All of our titles are encoded in the new AVC/H.264 MP4 format, which creates high-quality video in amazingly compact file sizes. And we're proud to be one of the very few content providers distributing DRM-free media, which is very consumer-friendly."
