The Walt Disney Co. on Wednesday announced a non-exclusive agreement with online movie service CinemaNow to offer the studio's films for download. Beginning June 6, Disney will provide both new and catalog movies through the service at a cost of $20 per new title and $10 for some older ones.

CinemaNow movies -- in Windows Media Video format -- can be transferred to up to three devices, including portable players, but they cannot be burned to DVD. Disney's announcement follows a handful of deals from April in which movie studios signed on to CinemaNow and its rival Movielink. Apple is also reportedly looking into offering feature film downloads via iTunes.
