Posted Mar 12, 2011

The Warner Bros. movie studio is adding digital movie rentals on Facebook. The first movie being offered for rent is The Dark Knight. You can rent the movie using Facebook Credits from The Dark Knight fan page. The cost per rental is 30 Facebook Credits ($3). After renting the movie, the Facebook user will have less than 48 hours to watch the movie. The movie can be watched in full screen.

“Facebook has become a daily destination for hundreds of millions of people,” said Thomas Gewecke, president of Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. “Making our films available through Facebook is a natural extension of our digital distribution efforts. It gives consumers a simple, convenient way to access and enjoy our films through the world’s largest social network.”
