he Internet . . . downloading movies online
In this crowded field, the options are always changing.
itunes.com connects you to Apple’s iTunes Store, which sells approximately 500 movies for $10 to $15 each. They can be copied to as many as five PCs and “unlimited iPods.”
Unbox.com, home of Amazon Unbox, offers around 6,000 movies. Buy or rent a film for $3 to $23, and you can watch it on one computer. In our trial, though, “the software crashed during playback.” TiVO owners will be glad they can watch movies through Unbox on their TVs.
