MovieLink has just announced a deal with Twentieth Century Fox, meaning that now MovieLink users can download movies from 20th Century Fox, Universal, MGM, Paramount, Warner Bros., Sony, Sundance, and the BBC, to name just a few.

Effective immediately, Fox will make movies such as “Robots” available for download through MovieLink. MovieLink allows users to either rent or purchase movies, both via download.


If you’re not familiar with MovieLink, here is how they describe themselves:

“Movielink is changing the way America rents and purchases movies. No more trips to the video store. No DVDs to carry or return. Just fast, easy, legal movie downloads direct from the studios that you can watch at home or on the road.”

Pretty nifty.

The downsides are that you can only watch the movie from your hard drive, which means on your computer or connecting your computer to your television and using your television as a monitor, and that MovieLink only works with Windows 2000 and XP. And, of course, you need a broadband connection to do the download.

MovieLink claims hundreds of both new and classic movies in their inventory, including Crash, A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and the director’s cut of Alexander.

  1. Seems like a decent option to renting movies. I don’t buy many at all since I usually only watch them once or maybe twice. I could delete them instead of storing them after I finish watching. Most of the time we rent movies is when we are traveling away from home and we hook the laptop up in the car and watch the movie then. I wouldn’t have to worry about returning the movie right when we get home and thus, no late charges.

  2. This would be totally useless to someone who has a quota on the broadband connection.

    I have a 20gig quota before my connection gets throttled for the rest of the month. I would NOT consider using some (most?) of this quota to download something I can get out from the video library.

  3. Why then would I buy movies if I can only watch them from my hard drive??? That would take up gigabytes of space!!! I don’t know about anyone else, but I cant spare that much space just to keep movies and watch them from my only from PC’s monitor… That is down right rediculous…What it would take for me to sign up for this site/service would be the ability to burn my purchased movies to DVD and watch them on any TV in my home a dvd player. I and most of the people in this world do not have the money to go out and buy extra hard drives just for the convenience of storing download only movies that were purchased via a website… If you are one of the lucky ones that does have the cash to do so… Go For It!!! however, for me this is not an option.
