They use a system called Kontiki which is similar to bittorrent for downloading content. Pretty frickin cool.

Plus they have brick and mortar places to project also.

To download the movies, you have to install the free kontiki client (operates like a bittorrent client).

I installed the Kontiki client and downloaded a daily festival newscast. When they said near DVD quality they mean it.
Format is WMA with DRM enforced.
This might be something we could all look into for dvinfo film makers (but find technology that would include Mac users).
Maybe our own festival?
Hiqh quality VASST training seminars with out the cost of airfare?

Note: The Kontiki client is similar to a bittorrent 'client' in that your machine is both a client and a server if need be, thus spreading out the bandwidth requirements for downloading large files over dozens, hundreds, even thousands of machines. P2P without a centralized server.
