Warner Licenses Content To Online Video Service
Warner Bros. Entertainment has licensed its content to the popular online video site GUBA, adding yet another online outlet for the studio's content. GUBA said yesterday that it has licensed more than 200 movie releases plus television shows from Warner for users to either rent or buy. The content will be DRM protected, and available for rental at $1.99 per movie, with purchase of catalog movies at $9.99 and new releases at $19.99. GUBA also said that television titles will start at $1.79 per episode. GUBA operates a web site that allows users to search for video, upload and share video. The deal puts GUBA in competition with CinemaNow and Movielink, two other online video rental/purchase services. Warner Bros. recently announced a similar deal with BitTorrent.
