One of the largest social networking platform, Facebook, has started renting out movies. While Facebook has been successful on conquering on almost every other thing, it was time till it waited to work out some way in achieving this boundary.
The company is not directly involved in this move, rather Warner Bros. is testing this process to see whether the social network platform is a more convenient way on grounds of digital distribution. The company started to rent out “Dark Knight” as an experiment, keeping all options open eying the platform having a lot of potential.
Warner Bros. announced:
Starting today, millions of fans who ‘Liked’ Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster film ‘The Dark Knight’ can rent the title through its official Facebook Page. Consumers simply click on the ‘rent’ icon to apply their Facebook Credits, and within seconds they will begin enjoying the film.
Renting out a movie on Facebook is made pretty simple. Visit the “Dark Knight” on Facebook, download and install the viewer app and mark your rent purchase via Facebook Credits. With just 30 credits or $3 in the US, users have the access to watch the movie within 48 hours.
All Facebook users can view the movie in full screen mode, pause and resume video, comment on it and obviously having the ability to share.
