Silverlight to power ‘jackass 2.5’

On December 19th, Blockbuster will premiere the first full-length feature film release to the web, Jackass 2.5, directly to online audiences using both Windows and Mac via Microsoft Silverlight

Jackass 2.5 will be made available for FREE, to anyone in the United States 17 or older.

As you can imagine this is one of the largest projects in Blockbuster history, made possible by using the rich media CDN from Limelight Networks and Silverlight. I think shows how rapidly Silverlight is maturing from its new born status back in September to where it stands today.

This is a massive first step by one of the biggest players in the movie rental market and it will be interesting to see the direction they, and other companies can take this in the future.

Jackass 2.5 – www.blockbuster.jackassworld.com beginning December 19th through December 31st, 2007 – Enjoy!
