From the BBC:

Backed by top Hollywood studios and TV channels, including Warner Brothers and CBS, Amazon Unbox will offer programmes and films direct to users' computers. Amazon's move into the online media business reflects huge growth in the demand for digital entertainment.

Computer and iPod firm Apple is widely expected due to unveil a similar service on 12 September.
Amazon's new download service is currently only available in the US, and offers TV shows for $1.99 (£1.06) per episode and movies for between $3.99 and $14.99.

Amazon Unbox should work on any personal computer that runs the Windows XP operating system and has broadband internet access.
