This promises to be interesting to say the least. A report in The Dallas Morning News says that Blockbuster will be using Microsoft’s Live Mesh to stream stream video to desktops and mobile devices.
"Eventually, we’ll give customers instant access to any movie on any device with an Internet connection and a screen," said Keith Morrow, Blockbuster’s chief information officer.
There’s not a lot of hard info yet and certainly no word on when and how, but this type type of delivery mechanism was the promise of Live Mesh plus Sliverlight when it was first being talked about. One of the possible features being talked about is allowing a customer to begin watching a movie on their TV and then being able to pause it, then pick up where the left off on a mobile device.
