Film Fresh and DivX Partner To Offer Downloads of Major Studio Films

Partnership to bring big studio content to much loved video format.

DivX certified products are everywhere, and it’s no surprise that the much loved video format has taken off. The only problem though, is that until now, there’s been little to no legal DivX content worth playing. Film Fresh aims to change that, thanks to agreements with Lionsgate, Sony, Warner Bros and Paramount.

The ability to legitimately download a movie in DivX means that consumers have a lot of freedom with their media. Though the service only offers a single download of your chosen film, that film can be backed up on DVD-R, USB dongle, or whatever storage device you prefer.

Title prices range from $9.99 to around $15, not expensive, but not exactly cheap for digitally delivered content, especially since at the moment, Film Fresh only offers films in standard definition. High definition is a future option, according to Film Fresh, but they’re not there yet.
