The ability to legally download major studio films is an exciting new opportunity offered by both MovieLink Kissanime and CinemaNow. However, there are some restrictions hidden in the fine print that you should know about before signing up for one of these services. In this article, we’ll compare the top two movie downloading services; CinemaNow and MovieLink.
These two movie downloading services have completely different pricing structures. When using MovieLink, you will pay per flick at a cost of $1.99 for older flicks and $3.95 for new releases. On the other hand, CinemaNow offers an unlimited subscription at a rate of $29.95 per month or $99.95 per year. So although the prices are set, the cost of each of these downloadable movie services ultimately depends on your movie watching habits.
You don’t get to watch movies over a several day period as you would if you were renting from Netflix or from the video store. Each rental is only available for a 24 hour viewing period. This doesn’t mean that you have to start watching it within 24 hours. Rather, once you begin the movie, you must finish it within 24 hours. With either downloadable movie service you can store movies on your hard drive for up to thirty days
If you enjoyed the movie you just rented, and want to make it a permanent fixture in your digital collection you can purchase it. The iTunes Store has thousands of movies available for purchase. If you purchase a select DVDs you can get a free digital copy that can be watched on iPod or iPhone and when and where you want. I will be purchasing my DVDs from iTunes, it is so convenient and the prices were right.
