Do you love Facebook?
Of course you do!
Do you wish you could rent and stream movies directly to it using Facebook credits?
Well, maybe. We don't know of anyone who has been vocal about wanting that specifically. Haven't really thought about it!
If there are people out there who really want that, then today is your day! WB has announced a new digital content distribution process in conjunction with Facebook!
So, how does it work?
Example from the Press Release:
"Starting today, millions of fans who “Liked” Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster film “The Dark Knight” can rent the title through its official Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/darkknight). Consumers simply click on the “rent” icon to apply their Facebook Credits, and within seconds they will begin enjoying the film. The cost per rental is 30 Facebook Credits or $3. This offering is presently available only to consumers in the United States. Additional titles will be made available for rental and purchase on a regular basis over the coming months."
Sounds kinda cool, especially the idea of being able to use Facebook's functionality to comment and chat with people on the fly about it.
There's no word whether or not there will be a group watch feature eventually, like available for Netflix on the Xbox 360.
Might have to check it out, though, we don't know if we've ever even thought about getting "Facebook credits" with real intention!
It goes live today!
How about U? Does this new content availability interest U?
