NEW YORK (Reuters) – Top electronics chain Best Buy will launch this month its planned online service CinemaNow that allows consumers to buy, rent and download movies and television shows.

This is still a young market, they could do it if they offer lower prices and more features than their competitors. It doesn't look too good though if they haven't already done a huge marketing push to launch the service. In my opinion they should flood facebook and youtube with nonstop ads.
