Amazon.com Offers Raiders for Download
September 8th, 2006
As the world of home entertainment moves into the realm of digital download, Amazon.com is offering a brand new service called Unbox, which offers motion pictures for download onto PCs with DVD quality. And the first Spielberg film to be offered through Unbox is none other than Raiders of the Lost Ark! The price is only $9.99 for the download and you will recieve a $1.99 rebate for your first purchase. However, the films are only playable on a PC running Windows XP (that means us Mac and iPod users won't be able to use this new service). But for the rest of the world, this new way to bring Hollywood entertainment home will be an amazing leap forward into the future.
So head on over to Amazon.com and download Raiders of the Lost Ark in case you don't own the DVD or just feel like having an extra copy on your hard drive!
