Sears has similar plans, as it is working with Sonic on a "multi-phase rollout" that will see Alphaline Entertainment embedded in various connected devices, including portable media players, Blu-ray players, mobile phones, and HDTVs. New titles will be available to purchase through the store the same day they ship on DVD and Blu-ray, but don't expect a steep discount on the digital form.
Looking at the Alphaline Entertainment store, DVD-quality downloads of movies like The American and The Town are priced at $19.95, which compares to $10-$15 on Amazon for physical copies. 24-hour rentals are cheaper at $3.99, but that still seems unreasonable compared to Netflix's $7.99 all-you-can-eat approach, even if you do have to wait an extra month for new releases.
