Oh, my, my. This is a dream come true for a number of old-movie fans. I love the Warner Archive for bringing so many classic and lesser-known films to DVD. Now comes word that they’re working on a subscription streaming service, currently in restricted beta, called Warner Archive Instant.
They’re promising access to their rare movies, TV shows, and cartoons through computer (PC or Mac using Microsoft Silverlight) or TV (in high definition through a Roku box). No mobile or handheld yet, but they mention plans to add additional devices in future. I’m very curious to see how much they’ll charge for this and when it becomes generally available.
