Gas Cards For Movie Subs

MovieFlix has brought together two of America's favorite industries with a new bit of self-promotion by offering free gas cards at random to newly registered members.

The Hollywood-based broadband movie provider on the Web, with 500,000 members, says all new MovieFlix members who successfully register for MovieFlix.com memberships, are now eligible to win a $250 gas card.

"With gas prices so high, this is a perfect opportunity for us to give back to our members," Opher Mizrahi, CEO and co-founder of MovieFlix.com, said in a statement.

One free $250 gas card will be given out each month to a MovieFlix member, with winners selected at random, according to the company.

Since Mizrahi founded the company in 1998, MovieFlix has developed and maintained a library of over 3,000 full-length movies, short films, independent films and television shows in more than 30 categories.

MovieFlix has partnered and commercially aligned itself with Industry-leading companies, including Time Warner AOL , Covad, iFilm Microsoft , NBCi, RealNetworks, RoadRunner, Rogers Communications, TV Guide, and Yahoo among others.

The service is available over the Internet via streaming video technology from MovieFlix.com.

The giveaway was announced shortly after two of MovieFlix's broadband partners came to an agreement over a two-year-old lawsuit. In the suit, RealNetworks accused Microsoft of abusing its monopoly to limit choice in digital media players, thereby hurting distribution of RealPlayer.
