Warner Bros, DivX sign digital distribution deal

By on October 14, 2008, 12:15 PM
Warner Bros. Entertainment today announced a deal that would enable online retailers to digitally distribute movies from the studio in the DivX standard format starting this month and high definition format in September 2009.

This means you'll be able to watch all the current and back-catalog Warner Bros. titles on hundreds of DivX certified devices, which include LG and Samsung phones, PlayStation 3 consoles and many Blu-ray and DVD players. The move is certainly good news for the DivX camp and marks the second deal with a major studio, following a similar one with Sony Pictures earlier this year.
