211w ago - If you own a Sony PS3 console (or any other DivX certified device) then you can claim and download a free DivX movie.
According to greavsie of the official European PlayStation Forums when you register on the official DivX site MoviePromo.Divx.com you are entitled to a free movie download that you can transfer to the PlayStation 3.
To quote: "All you need is to get a DivX VOD Registration Code from your PS3's System Settings and then enter that code on your Web site account.
You will then have to download a small file to play on your PlayStation 3 to activate it for Video-on-demand playback.
Finally, you can now choose what movie you want for free. The selection is small and not great, but the best one is probably Batman Begins. To download the film, you need the latest version of DivX installed on your PC."
