EzyDVD set to challenge Telstra Bigpond

DVD website to offer new download movie service

EzyDVD, Australia's largest online DVD store, confirmed today that it will be launching a movie download service, EzyDownload. The new service, which has been in active development for five months, is set to be launched in September this year.

EzyDVD founder Jim Zavos said; "EzyDVD is building a one-stop, online entertainment portal in EzyDownload, with content from major Hollywood studios, independents and music companies, offering legal download-to-rent and download-to-own options." The service will cover a broad range of entertainment media, including the latest movies, TV shows, music concerts, classic films and documentaries. It will also be the only Australian movie download company to offer a Data Transfer Object (DTO) service.

Zavos has also confirmed that EzyDownload is partnering with ISPs around the country to promote 'no cap limit' downloading. "This will give Australians access to extensive content at fair prices", Zavos said.

When it launches, EzyDownload is set to directly challenge Bigpond Movies, which is currently the dominant movie download service in Australia. With more than 35,000 daily visitors and 220,000 active subscribers, EzyDVD is ideally placed to take on its Telstra rival. Since its inception in 1999, EzyDVD has grown to become the most popular DVD website in Australia, receiving 12 per cent of all DVD related Internet traffic.

To jump start its venture, EzyDVD has acquired the assets of download provider, Reeltime and employed some of its key technical staff. "EzyDownload is implementing a new technical infrastructure that provides a more user friendly to that used by Reeltime", according to Zavos.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
