LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Paramount Pictures is exploring a new frontier by participating in an offer to sell Seagate hard drives with a copy of the latest "Star Trek" movie and 20 other films already on board.
The one-month offer, which both companies called an industry first, would combine a 500-gigabyte hard drive with a free version of 2009's "Star Trek" for an online promotional price of $100. An empty 500 GB Seagate hard drive usually sells for $140.
The pre-loaded movies come with a Windows-based digital rights management system that prevents file sharing. They take up about 50 GB of the drive itself.
