Did Amazon beat Apple to the punch? We’re all speculating that Apple will release some kind of movie download service next week, but Amazon did it today. They’ve officially opened Amazon Unbox, a download service for DVD quality video from 30 TV and movie studios.
Mac users won’t be too happy about this, as the new Unbox video service doesn’t work on a Mac, and the movies won’t play on an iPod. The service only works with Windows XP, SP2 and above. You also have to install the “Amazon Unbox™ Video software”.
