Beamining movies to you over the air

Moviebeam, a company formed by Disney, Intel and Cisco, have launched an movie-on-demand service in the United States. Whats makes this service so interesting is that it downloads the movies to your set-top box not via the Internet or Cable but via encoded PBS signals across the United States. The up-link, only used to update Moviebeam on your usage, is taken care of by a connection to your phone line. The box dials in every two weeks to a toll-free number and updates your monthly statement.Link to detailed NY Times ArticleLink to Moviebeam
