AOL to Sell Paramount Movies


AOL is expected to announce an agreement with Paramount Pictures Monday to sell downloads of the studio’s movies for prices ranging from $9.99-$19.99 per title.

The deal with the Viacom subsidiary follows similar agreements AOL cut in August with studio rivals 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures and AOL’s Time Warner sister Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

The movies are available for download via AOL Video (

With the addition of Paramount movies such as Failure to Launch, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Chinatown, AOL said it counts more than 300 titles in its library from major movie studios.
