News Letter Online Announcement
You are receiving this email because you are either a current or former member of Cinflix.com, and we have some exciting news to share with you! Over the past several months we have been hard at work on the latest version of our website, and it has finally launched. This new site site launch includes several bug fixes and enhancements, We will be migrating to a better helpdesk, and launching a new community page to get your input to help us improve our products and service, however the most exciting feature is our new Digital Delivery DVD rental or Online accounts, as we call them. With these new accounts you will be able to watch unlimited new releases of Movies and Dramas for only $12.95 per month on your computer.
How Does it Work?
Our new site is very unique as we are taking the original DVDs and converting them to digital format, then we are allowing our members to "rent" them digitally online by only allowing access to the number of copies that we have purchased. We are streaming using Mircosoft's Silverlight media streaming, (same technology that Netflix uses). Then using a Windows PC or Mac Computer with Siliverlight installed you can watch them instantly on your computer.
What Does this Mean for Me?
It means you will be able to watch more new release movies and dramas from anywhere you have Internet access immediately with little or no wait, all of this for less than you are paying now, and here is why:
Currently we are getting many releases much later because we have to scourer the Earth to find region ALL and NTSC versions of the movies we carry, as most of our members are not able to play "Region Coded" or PAL formatted discs. These typically get released much later than when released in their home countries, and sometimes they are impossible to find. We can now purchase any title when it is released and convert it to digital format. Additionally, since members will be renting them for length of the movie which is about 2 hours vs. 30 days, we expect to have more availability and little or no waits.
