NEW YORK, N.Y. – Web portal AOL Inc. says it will license full-length movies from Miramax for free viewing with advertisements by its U.S. visitors.
AOL didn’t say which movies it would offer but said they would be refreshed monthly and span a range of genres. They will play on its AOL On Network, the website operator’s destination for online video.
AOL says it is the one of the top three video destinations in the U.S. with 1.31 billion views and 3.8 billion online ads in March.
Miramax has a library of more than 700 films including “Pulp Fiction,” ”Chicago,” ”Good Will Hunting,” and “The English Patient.”
