Sonic teams with Best Buy for downloads


Home Media Magazine reports Sonic Solutions’ Roxio CinemaNow movie downloading service will soon be instantly accessible on and on “select devices” at Best Buy stores, the company announced.

The announcement came just days after Sonic announced that the service also would be available on two new LG Electronics Blu-ray Disc players, the BD370 ($299.95) and BD390 ($399.95), which will also offer on-demand access to Netflix and YouTube content.

“The exposure Roxio CinemaNow gains through leading CE device manufacturers like LG and top retailers like Best Buy will help educate millions of consumers about the convenience and flexibility of digitally delivered video entertainment,” said Dave Habiger, president and CEO of Sonic Solutions. “Consumers will be captivated once they discover just how easy it is to stream their favorite movies to their CE device or PC.”
