The service will initially be available in the United States and will gradually be rolled over in other countries.

The first movie that was made available on the Warner Bros Entertainment page on Facebook was “The Dark Knight”. Additional titles will be available for rental or purchase in the coming months. Rentals cost 30 Facebook Credits, or $3, for 48 hours, and viewers can pause and restart a movie whenever they log back in.

In an emailed statement, Facebook said, “We’re open to developers and partners that want to experiment using credits in new and interesting ways, and we look forward to seeing what they come up with.” Presently, more than 400 games and applications use Facebook Credits.
