“Target Corp. is testing a Netflix-like movie streaming service with its own employees. Called Target Ticket beta (find it at www.targetticket.com/home/beta), the service claims to offer “instant access to 15,000 titles, new releases, classic movies and next-day TV.” The site requires a Target employee login to use.
The Target website says users can either stream or download movies (streaming video is not stored on a computer’s hard drive, and thus can be watched instantly instead of after a lengthy download.) Target on Thursday acknowledged it was testing the video service with its employees, but provided no details.”
