IGN: Amazon Launches Unbox Movie Download Service

 The client is a .NET Framework 2.0 application -- interesting. 

 

Unbox does do iTunes one better by allowing up to 5 PCs to watch purchased videos. Portable Media Players are supported by means of an extra file included in all purchases, which is a specially encoded version of the video that the Unbox software can transfer to supported players like the Creative Zen Vision:M. Because the software is Windows only and the videos are all .wmv format, iPods are out of the question, another serious downside.
