Titles rented or purchased can be viewed on the PC using the RoxioNow Player and displayed on HDTVs via an HDMI connection or wirelessly from laptop systems featuring Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi).

"Sonic's primary focus is to create a unifying platform and inclusive ecosystem for the delivery and enjoyment of premium entertainment that benefits consumers, and provides new opportunities for a diverse range of companies," said Dave Habiger, President and CEO, Sonic Solutions. "Our work with Intel aligns with this focus, enabling us to collaborate with a true technology innovator, enhance the consumer entertainment experience, and help open a new distribution channel for premium content."
