Dell announced it has partnered up with Sonic Solutions to make Qflix DVD drives that, together with software and special DVDs, will allow users to legally record downloaded movies to DVDs with formatting and DRM that works both on other PCs and in home theaters. The downloads will come from the CinemaNow service, though how many and which DVD titles or TV shows will be made compatible with Qflix is not known. The limit is a requirement to purchase DVDs from Roxio, which also supplies the software for the drive, to make the process possible.

While the cost of the media is not known, the Qflix drive bundle is currently available as a $120 option in the US on Dell’s Inspiron, Studio and XPS laptops. Dell plans to offer the option on other consumer desktops later on this year. Included is an external Qflix-enabled drive which can read and write standard DVDs, two recordable Qflix DVD discs, the Roxio Venue and CinemaNow software as well as the requisite USB cable.
