Fox Will Offer Digital Movies Weeks Before DVD Release

Fox has announced its movies will be available in digital format at a reduced rate and three weeks prior to the physical releases on Bluray and DVD formats. The first movie will be the blockbuster Prometheus, followed by many of the latest theatrical summer releases.

Fox needs to tread carefully here, however. The company has tried to offer early digital copies in the past and failed to succeed for a number of reasons.
