McDonalds is looking to follow smaller restaurant chains and install film rental machines.
The mammoth fast food chain wish to put the system in place in all restaurant in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area by July 1.
The Redbox DVD machines offer films free for the first night and then $1 dollar a night after that.
Making films availiable in these restaurants will not help the growing obesity problem. By offering DVD's free for the first night it is likely that the customer will rush to get the film back by the next day, then end up eating at McDonalds again that day.
However, it will help the film industry, which is continuously being harmed by piracy.
