Warner Bros. announced Monday it would begin testing a program that would offer movies for sale or rental for a brief period through its fan pages on the social-networking giant.

Beginning Tuesday, Facebook users can use Facebook Credits to rent "The Dark Knight" through the movie's official fan page on the social-networking site, Warner said in statement. The movie can be rented for 30 Facebook credits or $3, and Facebook users will have access to the movie for 48 hours through their accounts on the social network.

Red Box & Now Block Buster rents for $1, so can you say FAIL?

Unless you can get these credits for free, it's a terrible idea.

...let me revise that
















...it's just a terrible idea.

Yeah but you have to leave facebook to go to a redbox or blockbuster... I'm pretty sure this will work reasonably well simply because so many people use facebook.

A netflix subscription starts at $7.99 a month and you can stream unlimited movies. So if you plan on streaming more than 2 movies during a single month you should probably just get netflix...

Not everyone has a BB or redbox nearby (as in me) and Netflix doesn't have all the best movies streaming (and its a PITA to just peruse and find good movies). Would I use it? Probably not, will other people, probably...

If its on facebook millions of people will see it and many use it just because its attached with FB.

God why wasn't I a Harvard undergrad in 2003
