We are pleased to announce that Mininova is testing a new technology which allows users to download and watch licensed movies and TV shows for free. These videos will be packaged by Hyper MP technology and are going to be distributed using Mininova Content Distribution for free. The unique feature of this system is that the videos can be downloaded and played anywhere in the world (no geo-targeting), and will make use of a new in-video advertising technology.
The first Beta test release for this technology trial is an amateur feature length comedy titled Battle Therapy. The film, produced by Australian film school students, is a wacky comedy about an unorthodox psychologist and his obsessive compulsive patients.
The movie is packaged in a Windows executable and is free of viruses and DRM, so don't let that deter you from downloading it. After viewing the movie, please feel free to send feedback on your experience with this technology to [email protected]
Please note that this first release is a trial only and it is not representative of the quality of feature length content that will follow upon the official release of the service. In order to assist in polishing the technology, all the feedback you are willing to provide will be greatly appreciated.
That's it for now, stay tuned for more updates soon!
