Warner Brothers, the major US film studio that recently launched a video renting service straight from a movie’s Facebook fanpage, has just announced that it will add five more blockbuster movies to the roster.
Initially offering Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster film The Dark Knight, Warner Bros. announced it will now offer five more movies — Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Inception, Life as We Know It and Yogi Bear — directly on Warner Bros. Entertainment’s Facebook Movie Pages
For 30-40 Facebook credits or $3-4, users will be able to view movies on its official fan pages while simultaneously being able to browse the social network. They will have 48 hours from the purchase to watch the movie, which can be viewed full screen and also paused and resumed within that period.
“We’re pleased to expand our test with a variety of titles that will appeal to a broad audience,” said Thomas Gewecke, President of Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. “These titles have substantial followings on Facebook. The Fan Pages for ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Inception’ alone are two of the most popular and active communities on the site.”
The program is only currently available in the U.S., and additional titles will be added on a regular basis over the coming months, Warner Bros. said.
