Xbox Live to Offer Disney Films in HD
Microsoft has forged an agreement with Disney to offer the studio's movies for rental via Xbox Live. High-definition films will cost 480 Microsoft points, while those in standard-definition run 320 points. Older films are priced at 360 points and 240 points. All films can be watched for 24 hours after downloading before they expire.
The Walt Disney Studios catalog includes titles from Walk Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Hollywood Pictures and Miramax Films. New movies will become available on Xbox Live as they are released, much like Disney does through Apple's iTunes. Microsoft did not say whether the deal would include Disney-owned ABC television programs.
