LEGAL movies downloads services


Hello,

I was trying to get myself a paid subscription with one of the legal movie download services out there (CinemaNow, iTunes, Amazon Unbox, Vongo, etc) but have noticed they're not compatible with Linux. Is there any legal service you might be using and know it's good quality, good price, Linux compatible?

Thank you.

As far as I am aware, because they all use DRM, they are incompatible with Linux. I suggest you look at just getting DVDs from NetFlix. We used their service for a few years (until we ran out of DVDs that interested us), and they were very good.

Thanks for the tip but if they're not selling good price DVDs, then rental is out of the question since I'm outside USA.

Since that's important and pertains to your question, you should either mention your location or fill in your profile so it displays on the left.

Yes, that's true, sorry I didn't do that. I didn't thought that finding a good legal movie download website has to do so much with location. My problem was compatibility between those and Linux. Thank you for your time.
