A new mode of movie ownership is briskly emerging -- one which someday may challenge the hegemony of the digital videodisc (DVD). During the last few weeks, Hollywood debuted two films, "King Kong," and "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," via a new media, broadband, Internet-based "download-to-own" service, as well as on DVD. The market could be worth Pounds 735 million -- or US$1.3 billion -- in the next four years in the United Kingdom alone, according to research from the London office of Strategy Analytics, the market research firm covering the IT industry.

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
