Dixons ready to get into the streaming video game
Watch out LoveFilm, Netflix and all that other lot who are plying their trade in the ‘streaming video’ game (and let’s face it, it IS a game.). That’s because there’s a new pig in the sty – the DIXONS pig!
Watch out world because Knowhow Movies is coming from the electrical retail giant and it promises to be spectacular. As they say themselves, “It’s almost time to get the popcorn ready, dim the lights and settle down for a great night in.” Ambitious, but when your top dog has just been headhunted by Apple, you’ve got to believe that anything is possible.
We’re not sure when the movies ’n’ TV service will go live but the pre-launch spiel says that you’ll be able to “store films online for quick access, or download your purchases and rentals if you don't want to watch them straight away”.
There’s no word on the quality of the line-up either, so we don’t know whether Knowhow will bring you the likes of Drive, The Sopranos and Downton Abbey or if it’ll be all Grease 2 and Bonekickers. Watch this space…
