Toys R Us enters video streaming business

(CNN) – Toys R Us is getting into the video streaming business.

Today, the toy chain is launching toysrusmovies.com.

The new digital service will offer four-thousand movies and TV shows geared towards children.

It won't be subscription based; instead pay per rental or download.

Prices are on par with those at Apple's iTunes store: two-99 for a 24-hour movie rental and one-99 for a TV show rental.

A Toys R Us spokeswoman says the site's family-friendly content will set it apart from competitors like Netflix and Amazon.
