Default Fox Will Introduce Premium VOD by June

It looks like the premium video on demand idea has caught on, with Fox joining the ranks.

Until they start including the bonus features, this is worthless to me.

$25-50. I don't see how this will fly. Who's going to pay that just to get a 60 day headstart? Throwing a party just to keep the cost of a movie down seems silly. Another big company completely missing the ball in the home video market.

$25 and even $50 is still alot cheaper then I get away with taking a family of four to the movies. Shoot by the time ya add in what would be bought at the snack bar plus the fact I dont have to sit around a bunch of strangers this is a good savings

Of course it would help if you had a 75 foot screen in your house.

Sitting 12-15' in front of a 10' screen will do just fine

Going to the concession stand is not a must for me or my family so this seems pretty drastic. After 60 days most movies are at the dollar theater anyway. So if it's a movie that I'm willing to wait 60 days to watch I can just go there or wait for it on Blu-ray.

This was my first thought, but, you know, we have had friends over and split the cost of a $30 PPV fight when we could have went to the theater and saw it on their big screen for $7 a person. This will find an audience, and will probably be here to stay, as it will cost the studios next to nothing to do this, will allow them to milk more money from audiences, and probably will have no effect whatsoever on home video releases.

Although it could lead to an increase in piracy.

it would be worth it if it was day and date release, not 60 days later.
