Miramax is partnering with Facebook to stream the studio’s video library on the social networking site.
Miramax will begin by offering 20 titles for rent in the U.S. and 10 each in the U.K. and Turkey, with France and Germany expected to follow in the near future. For 30 days, Facebook users will be able to rent Miramax titles for 30 Facebook credits, the equivalent of $3, which will expire 48 hours after the user first starts viewing the title.
