@Home Network, Release Software, Launch Software Store Cable ISP

@Home Network and Release Software launched SoftwareNow this week, a new online software store.

@Home users can choose to download and preview, rent or purchase a range of software products such as games, personal finance and productivity software "at speeds never before experienced by residential Internet users," the company said.

"Leveraging the try-before-you-buy function and @Home's fast download speeds, SoftwareNow provides customers with the freedom to test and purchase the software they want when they want," said Charles Moldow, vice president for media development for @Home Network.

The SoftwareNow server is located directly on the @Home Network. Because of @Home's high-bandwidth network, SoftwareNow is able to deliver larger-sized software titles than its competitors, the company said.

General Internet users can also access SoftwareNow at traditional dial-up speeds.
