Viz to Offer Death Note Downloads via Direct2Drive
posted on by Egan Loo
Viz Media has announced it will provide digital downloads of the Death Note paranormal suspense anime series via IGN Entertainment's Direct2Drive online store. The first subtitled episode will debut on May 10, just half a year after its Japanese premiere. Viz describes it as "the first time a well known anime property will be made legally available to U.S. audiences for download while the title still airs on Japanese television." There is no word yet on compatibility on different platforms and devices, or digital rights management issues. Update: Current Direct2Drive videos only support Windows computers with no support for iPods or video DVD burning. Thanks, roxfan.
