The HD digital distribution club
just got a little bigger, as lossless audio distributor
MusicGiants is launching its VideoGiants service with 250 movies from Paramount
, and additional content from HDNet. Available in 1080p or 1080i WMV
format, users can purchase the movies in 10-packs for $159 delivered via Seagate hard drives or, in a few months, one at a time via direct download to a home media server. After that, it can be viewed via the media PC or Media Extender
(including Xbox 360). MusicGiants has been selling HD audio tracks to high end home theater owners via its network of dealers and installers for about two years, with plans to make this type of service available to the mass market soon. Still think the future of HD content is on shiny discs?
