AMC Entertainment is starting a new service for customers. The company has launched an online video store of sorts that will be for US residents, wherein customers can rent movies fresh out of the theater, similar to Redbox, but straight to your TV. Adam Aron, AMC’s president and chief executive, said: “AMC Theatres On Demand will offer about 2,000 films for sale or rent after their theatrical runs — much like Amazon or iTunes.”
The newly launched service has made deals with the big movie companies of Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, Sony, and Paramount, who have accepted to make past and future movies available on the service. Prices will be between three and six dollars for rentals, and ten to twenty dollars to purchase a movie. There are no subscriptions required, and you can earn and use your AMC Stubs points while using the service, which works on your TV and on your gadgets.
The service is quite exciting and it already features Hobbs & Shaw and The Lion King, which are not available on most services yet. This is a game-changer for people who can’t get out of the house for a variety of reasons. It will be like going to the video store again! This is very exciting and I am quite excited about the service.
It is available now, and you can check it out here.
