Facebook movie rental arrives

Thinking about renting The Social Network? Why not use Facebook Credits?

Facebook has started renting movies, and its picked the cracking sequel to Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, as its debut offering.

A bit more choice wouldn’t go amiss, but we’re sure there’ll be more to follow and for the moment it’s a moot point for those in the UK: “This state or region isn’t supported,” we’re told on the landing page.

Anyway, it’s a glimpse into the future of video on demand in the social web; we’re interested to see if it can be tied in with deals. Free movie rental when you order a pizza? It’s a match made in heaven…
