Amazon Urges DVD Buyers to Try Out Unbox Downloads17 Jan, 2007 By: Jessica Wolf
Amazon is tying its Unbox video download service to the site's massive selection of DVD titles.
Throughout the month of January, when shoppers purchase a DVD at Amazon.com, they will automatically get a $1.99 rebate for the Unbox service.
Most TV show episodes on the site are priced at $1.99, which gives DVD buyers a free download.
Or, shoppers can choose to put their $1.99 toward a higher-priced video download purchase or rentals. Most feature film downloads on the site are in the $10-$15 range.
The Unbox rebate deal is good for 24 hours after the purchase of a DVD.
