I received an intriguing email offer to download a movie from Movielink for only $0.99. I normally wouldn’t be interested in such online offers but thought this was an exception since renting a movie from Blockbuster would cost nearly 5X as much. Besides, I consider myself a user of new technology and have an HTPC setup conducive to watching video files comfortably on my television. So I decided to try it.
I clicked on the email link which had a coupon code to get my first download for $0.99. The webpage opened and I hit my first minor complaint.
Sorry, but in order to enjoy the Movielink service you must use Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher, which supports certain technologies we utilize for downloading movies…
