DRM-Free Platform GOG.com Adds Movies

GOG, once known as Good Old Games, has become the premiere resource for DRM-free game downloads. Both classic PC titles and modern indie hits regularly arrive on the storefront, sometimes even before a Steam release.

Today it was announced that GOG is expanding their reach for DRM-free goods via movies. Many might not think about movies as having DRM, but when you buy them on iTunes or other storefronts this is regularly the case. The majority of releases will be priced at $5.99 and you can already check out their launch library of 21 films. Right now the focus is on documentaries related to games and gaming culture.

Curious but not willing to plunk down cash yet? Two of the DRM-free flicks, TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard and The Art of Playing are free. Although most movies are available in 1080p format, a few are at 720p. As with most GOG purchases, many of their films also include extras.
