Default Premium VODs May Come With DVD/Blu-ray

Studios seem to be sticking with the idea of premium on-demand content, but they're hoping to sweeten the deal.

$30-$40 for an early on-demand rental plus a copy of the Blu-ray when it comes out could be an offer too good to refuse.
Only if you knew (or had a good idea) you wanted to own the movie. Otherwise, it's about the same cost as a couple tickets to the theater--you won't be able to sell the movie you get for more than $15, and based on my experience on the Amazon Marketplace, take-home max is $10-12.

Shoot, $30-$40 a movie, and would include a free copy on Blu-Ray when it came out, I would jump on that! Even more, I might never go to a theater again! Or at least, much less! Some movies just have to be seen on the big screen (Tron, Harry Potter, Sci-Fi movies), but yeah, there are quite a few movies, especially romance comedies (No Reservations, Definately Maybe, any Adam Sandler movie) that I would buy into this format. However, I want priority shipping on the disc, so I can have it on release day. None of that 4-12 weeks for delivery crap that the Warner Bros store does!

I agree 100% The idea of VOD has always been a curiosity to me..but nothing more and I quickly forget about it. But now....if I can get a free blu-ray of the title (one that I knew I would want to own as Jables mentioned), with priority shipping so I can get it day 1....I would be all for that BIG TIME!

Hope that they stream this movies at true HD 1080p-24fps with 7.1 DD or DTS.
I have problem with quality of all current VOD offerings from netflix ,Vudu and others.
I have big pipe cable from comcast at 22Mbps (I get 30Mbps)
Big Screen TV
HDPC
So called HD content from netflix is arround 5Mbps. It is 1080p but compressed to the point that
on my TV it looks watered down. Audio - don't even want to comment.
