Netflix Still Considering Film Download Options

From Reuters

Online DVD rental company Netflix Inc. said it was considering several options as part of its strategy to let subscribers download movies from the Internet.

In a regulatory filing, Netflix said it was clarifying remarks made at a media conference Friday by Eric Besner, its vice president of original programming, who said Netflix was developing a proprietary set-top box.

The Los Gatos, Calif.-based company said no decisions had been made regarding specific delivery options or timing, but a spokesman said a set-top box was one of the options under consideration.
