Subject:        Online Shakespeare Movies

I snipped this from a New York Times article:

An Online Supplier for Your Desktop Cineplex
By TIM GNATEK

Going to the movies these days may simply involve a trip to your
desktop, as video-on-demand Internet movie services help turn personal
computers into multiscreen cineplexes.

A technological step beyond video rentals and pay-per-view cable movie
channels, these online movie services provide a legal and reliable way
to download and stream thousands of films, from recently released
Hollywood blockbusters to vintage serials.

Movielink (www.movielink.com) takes a different approach to online movie
rentals. A joint venture of MGM, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures
Entertainment, Universal Studios and Warner Brothers, it offers one-time
rentals for $2 to $5 rather than a monthly subscription. The Movielink
catalog has 800 popular films in 18 categories, including foreign movies
and some Shakespeare along with the standard action and romance titles.

They offer 33 BBC versions of Shakespeare's plays. The article only
mentioned Shakespeare's films as a part of the Movielink service so I
did not check: starzticket.com, movieflix.com, or cinemanow.com.
