A first for “Brokeback”


Eonline.com reports that Ang Lee’s award-winning Brokeback Mountain has become the Hollywood Studios’ first major title to debut as a download-to-own movie on the same day that it is available on DVD.

Brokeback Mountain, referred to as “the gay cowboy movie” and starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, will be available on Movielink.com, the online service jointly owned by the five big Hollywood Studios – MGM, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros.

Meanwhile, 75 titles (including Memoirs of a Geisha) from Sony and Lions Gate are now available on video-on-demand website, CinemaNow.com.

On both sites, older movies cost less than new ones and rental versions (which allow the user 24 hours to watch the film) are even cheaper.
