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.

The service will help Best Buy compete better with established online media players like Amazon.com Inc, Apple Inc's iTunes store as well as growing services like Netflix Inc and Wal-Mart's recently acquiredVudu service.

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.
