Sears and Kmart Team for Internet Streaming Service

Posted Wed Dec 29, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The companies are working on a roll-out to make the service available on different devices.

The streaming game is big, and its only just begun. Companies from all walks are jumping into it, including Best Buy, OnLive, and now Sears.

Sears and Kmart launched their new movie service Alphaline this week. Alphaline is a combined effort with Sonic Solutions and is on the same Roxio platform as many others. Using the service you'll be able to rent and buy HD movies for viewing.

Now that the service has launched, there need to be devices out there that can use it. That's not far in the future, according to Sears. "We'll continue to increase the reach and flexibility of the Alphaline Entertainment service," says Sears and Kmart president Karen Austin, "by providing consumers on-demand access to the latest entertainment from a range of home and mobile electronics."

You can check out the new service for yourself at Alphaline.
