Default Time Warner Provide Immediate On Demand for New Shows

Don't have a DVR? Don't worry. Time Warner's new service lets you access your shows on demand for up to three days immediately after they air.

I was watching Headline News this morning and they were reporting a story that Time Warner and various movie studios were in talks to offer movies on demand while they are still running in theaters. Downer is they could cost anywhere between $30 and $50 dollars per movie. They reported that this could start as soon as Spring 2011. This bit of news seems to be related to what I heard this morning.

Wow, why would anyone want to pay that price? Or is that the direct price from the studios who would charge Time Warner?

The thing about that pricing, I think, is that companies are comparing it to a night at the theater. Depending on where you go, it would actually be cheaper to sit at home and watch a new movie with your friends than going to the theater.

I'm not saying it's a valid price, mind you, but that's the thinking behind the pricing.

Then again, if you've got a badass home theater system, it might be worth it not to deal with the drive, the crowds, the crappy food and the idiot talking behind you
