Online movie sites CinemaNow (http://www.cinemanow.com) and FILMSpeed ( http://www.filmspeed.com) made separate deals today for promoting and adding more streaming movies to their respective web sites.

CinemaNow CEO Curt Marvis said, "We've spent the last year building our business and strategically solidifying our relationships with technology providers and growing our network of consumer driven web destinations as a distributor of quality online films. Our alliance with Lions Gate strengthens our conviction that Internet delivery of feature films-on-demand will be a dynamic and rapidly growing business for us in the near future."
