From CubicleBot: Facebook made Netflix, Hulu and Redbox a lot more uncomfortable today as they announced their very first online movie rental offering from Warner Bros—The Dark Knight.
Facebook users can rent titles for 48 hours with $3 or 30 Facebook Credits. The movie can be streamed through the film’s fan page.
Obviously, the Facebook movie service isn’t starting off with a loud bang, but with over 600 million active users, it’s pretty easy to see how this could become a really huge deal over time. Facebook plans to expand the service with new titles for rent and purchase in the coming months.
