Streamnation cracks open your digital TV and movie stash for online sharing


Digital movies and TV shows have a long way to go before they're as easy to share as an MP3. To that end, the cloud storage service Streamnation may have created a solution. You can now upload your own movies and TV shows to the digital locker service and lend them to whoever you want, so long as they also have a Streamnation account. Folks enjoying your videos have 24 hours to stream them across a number of popular devices, and during that period you can't view the media yourself. In that way, it's a lot like borrowing them a DVD or Blu-ray. The whole thing sounds an awful lot like Steam's sharing program, but the difference here is that historically, Hollywood tends to operate differently than the game industry when it comes to passing content around.
