DailyTech - Movielink Will Allow Downloaded Movies to be Burned to DVD

DailyTech - Movielink Will Allow Downloaded Movies to be Burned to DVD: "A company in California called Movielink is about to make available a service that allows movies downloaded through its online service to be burned to DVD. Unlike other online movie services which only allows downloaded movies to be viewed on either the machine it was downloaded on, movies downloaded using Movielink will be watchable on any DVD player. The only problem with this strategy is the feedback it's getting from Hollywood studios."

Meanwhile, from an article titled "For Some Netflix Users, Red Envelopes Gather Dust" in today's WSJ:
"'It's a paradox of abundance,' said Siva Vaidhyanathan, a professor of culture and communication at New York University. If people aren't pressured to see a movie in a specific time frame, he said, viewers tend to put it lower on their priority list. 'When you have every choice in front of you, you have less urgency about any particular choice,' he added."
