Movies Included With Seagate FreeAgent Go

Paramount and Seagate have teamed up together to try and boost the sales of Seagate’s FreeAgent Go 500GB hard drives, and in working together, have decided to include movies with the product. The movies, which come to a total of about twenty-one, will obviously be all Paramount film features, but there will be a catch in how users can access them. Star Trek will be the only movie that is actually free on the drive for viewing, and all of the other titles will have to be unlocked with a key, which has to be purchased. The keys will sell anywhere from $9.99 to $14.99 a movie, and with all of the movies unlocked, will take up roughly ten percent of the total hard drive space on the FreeAgent Go. It’s an odd way to try and boost sales, since consumers have to pay for the movies included if they want them anyway, but it might be possible for Paramount to help Seagate in some way if this is able to catch on.
