Seagate, Paramount team up on drives with movies

Seagate on Monday said it would ship its 500GB FreeAgent Go portable hard drives with movies from Paramount. Initially, users who register their drives will get access to the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie for no extra cost. Those same hard drives contain 20 other Paramount movies, which can be unlocked by purchasing a license key. The movies then become viewable on a number of devices, including desktop or notebook PCs, as well as HDTVs, thanks to the preloaded FreeAgent Theater+ HD media player.

The first-of-its-kind agreement prices the other movies at between $10 and $15, with the movie library offering titles that include GI Joe and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, among others. If the tril proves successful, it's likely more movies will be added to the list of offerings. Users can erase the preloaded movies if they don't want to buy them or need to free up space on the hard drive.

The special 500GB FreeAgent Go disks should be available now and will cost $100.
