Consumers with a broadband connection to the Internet and a $299 TV settop box from Aeon Digital will be able to download recent movies from Universal and watch them at any time during a 24-hour period. Aeon and NBC Universal announced a licensing agreement on Monday that will make such films as Ray and The 40-Year-Old Virgin and TV shows like Jerry Springer: Uncensored and The Land Before Time available on demand beginning this spring. Unlike similar services, the films are meant to be watched on a TV set, not on a computer.
