this is a step in the right direction but as is usual with all branches of the entertainment industries, they have over-priced their product! for this step to be successful, the price definitely needs to be dropped to approx $7.50-$10 max! the industries are ignoring that customers already have to pay for a phone line, pay for an internet connection and pay for a computer (one off payment but still has to be bought). even after paying these bills, to pay a higher price for home watching than a visit to the movies i doubt will happen, but that being the case, as again is usual, the industries will take it to mean that the service isn’t wanted, rather than their own fault for failing, as is typical in all things entertainment industries wise!!

This isn’t really news, its been experimented with for a couple years in one form or another by various studios. This time it happens to be Warner making the noise.
Keep in mind that Warner is also trying to sell the idea of a merger with AT&T, so the more press buzz they can create the better.

New movies to become available online 2 weeks after their cinema …

Yeah, they have to be quick before the word is out there that this movie is crap… hence Hollywoohoo is siphoning the US cinemas. In Ostraya no one is paying this money for a ticket anyway.

I rented a movie the day it came out on DVD for $1.50 from my local rental store. If I have to pay $25 bucks to watch the movie while it’s still in theaters, I think I’ll wait until it comes out on DVD. That way, there’s no internet-based DRM that attempts to spy on me.

It’s an interesting offering and if piracy didn’t exist I would think it might be a good idea. Â The problem is that they haven’t made anything that’s uncrackable yet. Â It’s one thing to have crappy home camera bootlegs available on the internet shortly after a movie comes out. Â It’ll be something completely different if high quality HD versions of movies get leaked on the net. Â You would think that could be devastating to the industry.

One of the reasons they make so much money on the theatrical release is they have the windows… that even if you pirate, you can’t see the movie for about 4 months unless you opt to see it in the Theatre… Â
