DRM-free movie, TV content from 4Flix.net

Mac-friendly downloads

4Flix.net has announced a new service without Digital Rights Management (DRM) restrictions. Hundreds of feature-length movies, TV shows, independent films and more are now available for playback, and will be compatible with the "upcoming Mac Mini," placing 4Flix.net in direct competition with Apple and its own iTunes' video download service, which delivers content with DRM restrictions, limiting playback to up to five computers. Customers may download their purchases-- priced at $1.99 or less each- to their computers and then move the files freely between viewing devices, including portable media players and living room-based media centers. 4Flix.net's advanced video compression codec allows for high resolution at lower bitrates, enabling smaller file sizes with superior quality. Besides the video iPod, the DRM-free media files are cross-platform and play on any Mac or PC with Apple's QuickTime 7 installed. The DRM-free service helps to break the 'content logjam' by providing consumers with control over their digital media, according to the company.

    Have you seen it?

    Their promises are so wonderful!

    A list of movies a page and a half long, that they DON'T HAVE YET!

    Give me a break. I think I'll open a store with no merchandise and make people sign up so I can use that as leverage to buy stuff to sell. Yea, that'll fly.
