Warner Brothers announced recently that they are beginning to test purchasing and renting a select number of movies through Facebook. The first offering from WB is “The Dark Knight” which is available to rent for 30 Facebook credits or approximately $3.
Users will be able to watch the movie online through their Facebook page for up to 48 hours after purchase with the ability to pause, resume or watch the movie full screen. Fans will also be able to interact with the movie, leaving comments or posting status updates about the mshows they’re currently watching.
What’s your take? Would you watch a movie on Facebook if the price was right? Do you think Facebook can contend with the likes of iTunes and Netflix?
