Digital Distribution Video Special

March 19, 2008 - Digital distribution is getting a lot of press these days. Apple's iTunes Music Store revolutionized (major music labels say ruined) the means by which consumers buy and enjoy music, and now Apple, and a number of others, are aiming to develop a similar solution to allow users to rent movies without leaving the couch. Today, the Apple TV, Vudu, and Xbox 360 are squaring off in the first generation of the digital distribution war for the allegiance, and cash, of consumers who are ready to abandon brick-and-mortar movie rental chains in favor of on-demand access to thousands of titles accessible over the internet.

In this video special, we go hands on with each of the three major players to show the strengths, weaknesses, and unique characteristics of each digital distribution solution.
