Movielink Inks Deals With Independent Studios

Among the more than 100 new titles added to the download service are Academy Award-nominated documentary Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room and Academy Award-winner Born Into Brothels.

Movielink on Thursday said it has signed deals with independent studios that add more than 100 movies to its download service.

Movielink, based in Santa Monica, Calif., inked agreements with Magnolia Pictures, ThinkFilm, Hart Sharp Video, Wolfe Video, Tempe Video, Wizard Entertainment, Media Blasters, Associated Television International and Inecom Entertainment Co. Titles added to the Internet company's offerings include Academy Award nominated documentary "Enron: Smartest Guys In The Room," and Academy Award winner "Born into Brothels."

Movielink is available to U.S. Internet users with broadband connections. In July, Movielink announced that it had licensed technology from Sonic Solutions to eventually add the ability to burn movies to DVD. Such a feature is important to make movie-download services more popular to consumers, who prefer to watch films on TVs, experts say.

Movielink trails rival CinemaNow, which has already started offering burn-to-DVD movies. It's available titles, however, is very limited, and doesn't include the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
