According to Techtree, Amazon.com is in discussions with major Hollywood studios to develop a service that will allow users to download movies and t.v. programs and burn them onto regular DVDs.
Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios and Warner Brothers are reported to be involved.
This news comes shortly after rumors that Amazon was talking with major record labels about developing a music downloading service similar to iTunes.
Whether these rumors are true or not, it does seem like a logical direction for Amazon to take. Plus, they would be a powerful contender to industry leading Apple Inc.
