LoadPod Adds Movie Loading Service for Video iPods

LoadPod on Wednesday announced that it can now load DVD movies, in addition to music libraries, on its customers' video-enabled iPods. Available in eight U.S. cities, LoadPod's service picks up a customer's iPod and media collection and returns it within a few days.

The company encodes movies at the iPod's 320 x 240 display resolution and says that each one takes up less than 1GB of storage, on average. As with a DVD player and a TV, the films fill up the iPod's display if they're non-widescreen or appear with black bars across the top and bottom if they're letterboxed.

LoadPod only handles the movie itself. Trailers, subtitles, commentary and bonus features are not included. The company will only load full-length feature movies from store-bought DVDs; it doesn't handle TV series, live concerts or other content.

Pricing for the new service is US$34.95 per DVD for 5 to 10 DVDs, $31.95 per DVD for 11 to 20 DVDs and $27.95 per DVD for 21 to 40 DVDs. Movies longer than three hours are subject to a $10 surcharge per hour.

LoadPod's service is available in New York City, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle. Even if they live in one of those cities, customers should check the company's Web site to make sure they live in an area code where the movie service is offered.
