Default Studios scramble as digital sales cool

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...rticle2093351/

[QUOTE]The industry had high expectations for digital film downloads but, after a promising start by the market leader, Apple’s iTunes store, and the launch of a flurry of rival services, sales growth has slowed, according to a new report by IHS Screen Digest, a media research firm./QUOTE]

Not sure what the "flurry of rival services" are.

[QUOTE]Still, Hollywood is generally optimistic about digital film distribution, with many executives pinning their hopes on cloud-based services that would allow consumers to store digital copies of films remotely/QUOTE]

Certainly many executives cannot be pinning all their hopes on the cloud. They still have Blu ray.

[QUOTE]The studios are fighting battles on multiple fronts: they hoped Blu-ray discs, the successor to DVD, would eventually pick up the slack but, while sales of the new format are growing, they have not been enough to replace lost DVD income./QUOTE]

Ok, maybe they are pinning all their hopes on the cloud.
