, a San Francisco-based company that was a pioneer in online video content, today announced that it would make its most popular films available for download in formats tailored for the PC, the Apple iPod
, and the Sony PSP
. For the launch of the new service, which remains free, AtomFilms has made 10 shorts available. The test video I downloaded saved swiftly to my hard drive as a ZIP file, and I'm pleased to note that there was no advertisement to sit through, as there is when you watch the films online; instead, you get a brief still shot announcing that the service is sponsored by the Sony PSP.
