The movie show business has tried all kinds of approaches to compete with the lure of at-home streaming, from subscription passes to new codecs. Nonetheless, with the nearly unstoppable rise of Netflix and extra competitors coming quickly, AMC is getting in on the motion with its personal streaming program.
Known as AMC Theatres On Demand, the iTunes-like on-line retailer will supply round 2,000 movies which could be purchased or rented for residence viewing after their theatrical runs are over. The films can be accessible within the US solely and costs will fluctuate between $three and $6 for leases and $10 and $20 for purchases.
AMC has made offers with the 5 largest studios, Disney, Warner Bros., Common, Sony and Paramount, to supply their films on the platform. This new service follows its present AMC Stubs program, which lets subscribers see as much as three films per week at theaters.
The net video retailer is ready to open this week.
