Universal and Wippit to launch download-to-own film site


Universal Pictures and Wippit have announced a download-to-own (DTO) partnership that will allow visitors to the Wippit site to download recent and new release film titles to their PCs on the same day as the DVD release.

Titles available will include Jarhead (pictured), King Kong, Pride & Prejudice, Inside Man and American Dreamz, as well as older and special interest titles.  Downloads will be priced from £9.99 per title, with a special introductory deal offering 3 titles for £20.

Ownership is via Universal’s 3-copy DTO model – two digital files downloadable to PC/laptop and a portable device and a DVD that’s mailed across by post.
