Full Stream Ahead is a week-long celebration from 7-13th June of legal online movies. Several Hollywood studios are working together with Blinkbox in the UK to offer Britons the chance to try out its legal movie streaming service for nothing.
The campaign, which is backed by the BFI and UK Film Council, is intended to show internet users that there's an alternative to illegal downloading. All you have to do to get £20 of credit to use on Blinkbox's website is to visit fullstreamahead.co.uk and click on the Free Trial link on the right-hand side.
You'll then be asked to create a free account on Blinkbox and once you sign in, you'll see you have £20 of credit to rent or buy movies. The selection, from studios such as Paramount, Sony, 20th Century Fox and Universal, includes Avatar, Law Abiding Citizen and Sherlock Holmes.

We’ll have more to share next week when Office 2010 is released to consumers, including how Office 2010 + SkyDrive + Office Web Apps give you the best productivity experience across the PC, phone, and browser.
In the meantime, if you live in the US, UK, Canada, or Ireland, you can head over to Office.live.com today to start viewing and editing Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote documents right in your web browser – and share them with your friends.
