CinemaNow DVDs Work
Last week, Electronista reported that an engineer claimed CinemaNow's Burn to DVD feature for downloaded movies was fundamentally broken. Discs burned would allegedly refuse to play in most DVD players, effectively negating the point of paying extra for a physical copy. Not surprisingly, CinemaNow disagrees with that engineer's report. The company sent a statement to the press denying the problem and claiming that its DVDs work in "most" players that can handle recordable discs. CinemaNow also says that its customers are happy and even cast doubt on the sincerity of the engineer in question, suggesting that his anonymity meant he had something to hide. There has yet to be an independent test supporting either CinemaNow or the original claim.
