I guess it might be convenient as a rental service for people who already own (or are willing to buy) an apple tv, but I can’t see too many people buying given that the DRM presumably locks it to the computer it was downloaded to (or 1 iPod - who wants to watch a film on an iPod?) & a DVD can be played on any computer or DVD player. Price is also somewhat of a stumbling block as its a similar price to physical media rentals/ purchases, but what you are getting is much more restricted & liable to be lost when your hard disk dies or you upgrade/replace your computer When are the movie studios / record companies going to release their products in download form at a lower price than the physical media forms? That’s what I want to know!
