4Flix.net offers new plan, notes ‘6th generation Video iPod’

4Flix.Net has announced its Free*Pass monthly subscription plan, which allows unrestricted access to the site’s collection of iPod-ready videos for $9.99 a month. The service allows members to download any of 4Flix.Net’s DRM-free feature-length movies, classic TV shows, and independent films. Strangely, in 4Flix.Net’s press release for the new service, sent to iLounge, the company lists “Apple’s 6th Generation 16x9 widescreen Video iPod” as a supported device. Apple has obviously yet to introduce such a device and is unlikely to provide product details to a company such as 4Flix.Net in advance of such an announcement.

Update: As noted in the comments below, 4Flix.Net has updated its press release on its website, which now lists “Apple’s 5th Generation video-capable iPod” as a supported device.

They’re just looking for traffic. They don’t actually know anything, why would they?

Interesting.  Personally, I’m still hoping that with the Nvidia chip inside the new iPods, that we’ll have a better MPEG-4/h.264 decoder so we can get near-HD experience.  Then I can rip my DVD’s, plug the iPod into the TV and leave my little silver disks pristine in their cases.

Looking for traffic or even preparing for “possibilities” perhaps they are betting on such a release and want to be able to provide content very quickly and just accidently let on that they were planning.

They likely don’t know anything more than anyone else.

They’ve just done some guesswork for extra publicity.  And it worked.

That’s been around for years, though. I remember it being bandied about as evidence of an imminent movie store since at least the birth of the iPod mini. It’s just where Apple stores its QuickTime Movies for the trailers, etc, I believe. Nothing to see here, citizens, move along.
