(San Francisco, CA) -- Not just QuickTime movies, but real, DVD-quality, full-length feature films are now available to broadband customers at Gamelink.com. Game Link(tm), the Internet's leading adult-entertainment mega-mall, announces its new downloadable movie service that lets you download a film in DivX(tm) format directly to your hard drive. Powered by the DivX(tm) Open Video System from DivXNetworks, the new service offers a secure solution for full-screen, near-DVD quality titles that users can download and begin watching in a matter of minutes.
For the minimal rental fee of $14.99, users can watch a movie as many times as they want for a whole month (rewinding or fast forwarding as often as one likes) without ever having to worry about getting it back to the video store on time. Additionally, with the DivX "progressive playback" feature, users can begin viewing the film before download has completed, offering the convenience of streaming at a much higher quality level. "We are the first entertainment aggregator to deliver this kind of technology on a large scale," says Ilan Buni, Game Link's founder and CEO. "Although there has been a lot of talk about downloadable movies being the wave of the future, mainstream studios and entertainment companies are just not prepared yet take the leap."
"With their wide range of content, commitment to customer satisfaction, and early adoption of new technology, Game Link is an excellent partner to launch a VoD service with the DivX Open Video System," said Jordan Greenhall, DivXNetworks co-founder and CEO. "We're pleased to work with Game Link to bring a full-screen, DVD-like experience to users who have previously had to settle for grainy, postage-stamp sized streaming video."
This isn't the first time that Game Link has taken advantage of early technology innovation and made it pay off with big benefits. Last year Game Link launched its Video on Demand (VoD) service with its proprietary Resume-Viewing(tm) feature. This streaming-video service offers instant access to a collection of more than 3,000 VoD titles, the largest on-line library of adult VoD movies available. Within a view months of initiating the service Game Link's web site was receiving over 1,000 orders a day, worldwide. "We are always looking for new technology to help us enhance our customers purchasing and viewing experience," says Game Link's Marketing Director Beverly Zeliger. "As a result, we often are utilizing the latest innovations, especially in digital media technology, long before other businesses jump on the bandwagon. Downloadable movies were the next logical step for us to take."
Movies ordered on Gamelink.com download progressively to a computer's hard drive. Therefore, shortly after the download begins the movie can be accessed and viewed while the download finishes. Game Link has launched the service with 100 titles and new titles are being added on a weekly basis. The company anticipates there will be over 1000 titles available by December 2002. Offerings include films from top studios such as Elegant Angel, Jill Kelly Productions, Sin City and Digital Sin. All titles are Drm (Digital Rights Management) protected.
Game Link is the original e-commerce adult-entertainment enterprise. Begun in 1992 by selling games over the Internet, Game Link switched to more profitable adult material in 1993. As an Internet destination content aggregator, the company markets products from a variety of industry-leading vendors. It has grown to become the industry's largest and most technically advanced adult-content shopping and broadcast entertainment site, offering over 50,000 videos and DVDs, more than 4,000 VoD titles, and over 2,000 adult products such as toys, lingerie, and performance aids. While many e-commerce companies and applications are failing to produce profits, nine years of innovative Internet R&D coupled with uninterrupted revenue growth and profitability have positioned Game Link as the world's most successful adult entertainment purveyor.
