Best Buy promises Blue Sky video downloads

Electronics retailer giant Best Buy announced on its Twitter page that it will offer a video-on-demand service dubbed Blue Sky for its Reward Zone Premium Silver members. Unlike a similar promised service that was announced last year, this one will be offered to the store chain's Reward Zone Premium Silver members. These members will be able to rent one movie every month.

According to the November announcement, Best Buy was partnering with Roxio on an online movie service. It would give those who bought a physical DVD at the store the ability to download from anywhere and watch once a movie from a CinemaNow-based service.

Walmart, which sells electronics among other things, has also recently said it would re-enter the online video market, and has purchased VUDU to help deliver on this promise. [via BizJournals]
