$799 ??? for the selection of about 6000 movies, from their Watch Now List. :B they won’t sell many of them. $99 or $59 more like it.

What I wonder is if there will some way to record this, or if this is only going to become a very expensive techie pay-per-view. If one ends up paying for a movie like that, but can only watch it with nothing to show for it, why not save the expense and just rent a DVD from the local video store? If all the factors I’ve named as possibilities were to somehow all or partly be true, who would want to pay that much for an expensive convenience? How will it give the consumer “control” if the consumer will only be able to watch it and that’s it? That “control” would only be for Netflix’s benefit in that case.
