As digital downloads and streaming seems to be the way of the future, we also get many companies trying to dip their greedy ass hands into it by providing some sort of digital service. Sears, who also owns K-Mart, has just released their digital service recently called Alphaline Entertainment.
The service is pretty basic as it gives you the option to rent or buy flicks and TV shows. Most of the movie rentals will cost you $3.99 while buying a movie can be priced up to (most of them are) $19.99. TV shows will set you back about $1.99 an episode or you can buy a whole season, in which the price will be set $1.99 an episode (boo, no discount).
Pretty much, we got another standard and simple digital service that isn’t really doing anything new and is trying to compete with Netflix, in which they completely dominate with their Instant Streaming and DVD service. While it’s always good to have competition, I don’t see why Sears had to enter into this market as they are not doing anything new.
What do y’all think of this new? Is this something you would try out or is Netflix the way to go? Also, what would you like to see be provided in a digital service? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
