CinemaNow upgrades to streaming 1080p

Best Buy’s CinemaNow online movie service is adding several hundred movies in 1080p HD to their streaming library. The hi-def additions include movies from 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. which will contribute to CinemaNow’s 15,000+ title library. There is one caveat though. If you want the 1080p HD quality you’ll need a Windows 7 PC with a 2nd generation Intel Core processor and Intel Insider technology. (The hardware-based Intel Insider rig enhances security on 2nd gen. Intel Core processors.) That leaves out a number of willing viewers (anyone with a 1st gen. Intel Core) and Mac users who might want to test out the quality. To add fuel to the fire we tried searching for some 1080p titles from the aforementioned studios, or any HD titles for that matter, but came up empty. View more details in the press release included below.
