AT&T's cable modem service, @Home Network, will today kick off the entertainment on demand revolution with a service showing short films on the Internet.
The free Click Cinema service will feature digital short films, videos and animations of five minutes or less.
@Home subscribers will also be able to submit their own short films for possible viewing by the service's 460,000 subscribers.
To view the films, @Home customers accessing Click Cinema on a multimedia PC will first see a short review of the film. If they wish to view it they simply have to click on the appropriate icon. The films will then be streamed directly to the PC. Customers, however, will not be able to store them on their PC.
The site plans to offer five films a week, with one new film being added each week.
@Home believes the short films will be an entertainment break for customers checking out stock quotes or searching for information online.
