Virgin has announced the launch of PictureBox, the leading movies-on-demand TV subscription service, on its TV platform. Here are the details from the press release:
Not the latest movies by any stretch of the imagination, but a cheaper option that Filmflex for those who don't have Sky Movies. I've found a link to a site that has the service's current offering on BT Vision: Picturebox
From July, the PictureBox service will be available for £5 per month. Subscribers will be able to view films whenever they like from a selection of 28 films at any given time, with seven new titles being added to the line-up each Friday. Most of the PictureBox films will be available in HD and many will not yet have been seen on free-to-air television in the UK.
Highlights of films that will be featured on PictureBox in the coming months include such hits as Hot Fuzz, The Bourne Ultimatum, Children of Men and The Holiday, as well as classic blockbusters such as Scarface, Total Recall, The Nutty Professor and E.T – The Extra Terrestrial. PictureBox is wholly owned by Universal Pictures Ltd.
