Default Prima Lets You Stream Movies Currently in Theaters at Higher than Blu-ray quality

Of course, the system is going to set you back a little bit - $35,000 for the player and $500 per film.

I would love to know exactly what annual income bracket would buy this thing. I figure I'd have to clearing... 5 million a year after taxes before I got one.

What would your income have to be?

If these movies are made digital and distributed through the internet, I find it inevitable that they will be downloaded and shared somehow.

Default Greedy Bastards!!!

Are they out of there ever loving minds?

Obviously it has to be $500 for a movie because someone rich enough to buy one is going to have a Home theater that seats a couple of dozen people. And they want to make sure they aren't trying to pull a ... oh hell there is no freaking excuse!!

Why to these self entitled jerks think that anything they make is worth that kind of money? I don't care if the movie is still in theaters, unless you are going to install a 75 Foot wide screen etc with it, even $20 is too much for first run movies.

The only reason this tech is this expensive is the licensing deals behind it and the fact that the entities involved just don't even live in the same world as the rest of us.

Unreal.

Why is $20 too much? It costs more than that to go to the movies.

Not enough to warrant a consideration. Even if I was rich, common sense and reality would hit me hard before my wife ever could,lol. If I was rich, I still would not get this.

A 24hr rental at that! This is insane on all levels. If the player we say $5-10K and the rentals $75-100. I could see that. Still insane, but if u make a decent living and have a large family, it may make things easier as a family of 5 can easily spend $100 going to the movies. And if it's a "Fork and Screen" even more! But $35K and $500/movie is just absolutely ridiculous on all levels of ridiculousness. I can't even think of a reason in my mind where that kind of money may be worth it, lol!!!

I wish they would offer these encodes as an alternative to the BD release. I would LOVE to have these. I'm already building a server for my personal collection, I would love to start adding in better video if available.

10-bit and 4:2:2
