Some libraries have begun offering free movies and TV shows through a new service by PermissionTV. You can check out one library's implementation here. It's still in beta, but there are some annoyances:
1. You have to have Windows Media Player 9 or above installed with "the most recent DRM security update."
2. No Mac support.
I imagine that #2 will eventually be fixed, but I don't have a lot of hope for #1. Why, oh, why offer free services and then destroy them with DRM and inferior media players?
