Disney strikes a deal with CinemaNow

Disney movies can now be bought and downloaded on the Web site CinemaNow.com.

"Chicken Little," "National Treasure" and "The Pirates of the Caribbean" are among the 30 Disney titles available for purchase on the Internet site, Forbes reported Wednesday.

CinemaNow used to be an Internet rental service and only recently began offering films for download. Disney was attracted by CinemaNow's plans to make downloads playable on portable devices in addition to computers, Forbes said.

With the addition of Disney, CinemaNow has titles from Sony, MGM and Lions Gate Entertainment in its stable.

The company is currently in talks with Paramount and a deal could happen by late summer, Forbes said.
