ReelTime Media and Yahoo!7 have partnered to form a TV and movie download service available to Australian residents.
Under the agreement, Yahoo!7 users can link directly to ReelTime.tv to access and download its range of major and independent studio movies and TV programs to a PC, laptop or portable device.
Users of the service have the option to download to rent (DTR) and download to own (DTO) any content purchased.
ReelTime Media managing director John Karantzis said the deal would allow Yahoo!7 users access more than 1500 hours of content from providers such as Sony, MGM, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal, Dendy, Playboy TV and Hopscotch.
In November, ReelTime.tv partnered with Universal Pictures Australasia for what Reeltime claims as the first major movie DTO service in the world to include secure burn technology.
The technology works via breaking a film up into two Windows Media files and a third digital file that allows the movie to be securely and legitimately burned to DVD.
