Movies On Facebook

Warner Brothers is tying up with facebook management to be able for the million facebook account users to watch movies using their facebook accounts.  This is one way of Warner Brothers to attract many many movie viewers using one of the most popular site nowadays.  I am referring to facebook.  This is a brilliant plan, the WB and FB will both benefit to it.  As a facebook user, I am looking forward to it.

Here are some of their ideas on how it will going to happen:

The movie studio announce this evening that they would begin testing a program wherein fan pages of the social networking giant can rent or buy movies available for viewing from the Warner Bros. studio through the Facebook Fan Pages.

Yes, that is correct, it is not free,  they will be charging certain amount for this,  (which will make many FB users to get uninterested in this offer). 

Beginning tomorrow, Facebook users can use their Facebook Credits (users earned Facebook Credits via other Facebook Applications such as Farmville, Mafia Wars, and other games to play via facebook) to rent the movie titled "The Dark Knight" through the "movie official fanpage" through the social-networking site.

Warner said in statement...The movie can be rented for 30 facebook credits or $3,  and facebook users will have access to the movie, as simple as that, but don't get too excited because the 30 facebook credits or the $3 you spent for the movie will be just for a limited time,  it will be available only for 48 hours.

"Facebook has become a daily destinations for hundreds of millions of people,"  according to Thomas Gewecke, President of Warner Bros. Digital Distribution.  "Making our films available through Facebook is a natural extension of our digital distribution efforts.  It gives consumer a simple, convenient way to  access and enjoy our films through the world's social network."

Aside from the benefit of watching the movie, the users will be able to pause it and continue watching upon logging in to their account (should be done within 48 hours) the users as allowed by the Warner Bros can still post comment and interact with their friends while watching their movie.

Unfortunately, this program is currently available in the United States territory only and additional title will be added on a regular basis over the coming months.  So if you are living outside U.S.,  join us in praying for a miracle to happen and we can be a part of this program.

This is a very brilliant merging for both giant firm, one in the movie industry and the other in the social networking... but there are some points that needs to be resolve that can help holding back its success to the fullest

The limitation on the availability of the program. 

The use of facebook credit or amount of money for the program.

Hoping that both firms could come up on a better solution for this.
