Early DVD Release Causes Problems

 

Many cinema owners are worried that DVDs are being released too early. They believe that it will cause a dent on ticket sales because fans will wait for the DVD release instead of going to the cinema.

Alice in Wonderland almost got boycotted in cinemas across the UK, Irish Republic and Italy. Cinemas claimed that it´s unacceptable that the DVD release is only three months after the movie opens.

Various companies believe that earlier DVD releases will cut down on piracy, while cinemas believe that their investments are at huge risks.

  online streaming?  
 
probably be able to solve both problems if the cinema distributed an online stream which could be delivered to your TV via any carrier, pay the distributing companies a piece, cinema a piece and the carrier a piece. that way all 3 will stop bitching. since it´s a stream to tv which doesn´t require moving, more people will be inclined to buy which increases customer base so prices stay roughly the same.

anyone see any flaws with that idea?

  forgot to mention  
 
This system is already used by the FTA (Free-To-Air) system so it´s nothing new. Any carrier that has a digital box can start doing it from day one.

  it cuts down on my piracy  
 
I was going to download it as I dont like paying $20+ for a cinema ticket. Now I will wait and buy it for $24 on DVD.

Is what the run of a movie is at the theater anyways, that if it is any good.

  The internet claims another industry!  
 
Let us all sit back and watch as the theater industry dies a slow painful death (much like the newspaper industry). I haven´t been to the theater in years... $8 tickets, $7 popcorn, $5 drink, obnoxious strangers, uncomfortable seats, can´t pause and take a leak, can´t drink a beer, etc... GOOD RIDDANCE!

  Great  
 
Now can someone please fix the air transportation system or dump it. I am sooo oooooooo sick of snooty stewardesses and stewards thinking they are more than paid servants.

  The studios don´t want  
 
middlemen anyhow. In the US studios aren´t allowed to own theatres.

  I thought that TV  
 
was supposed to bring an end to movie theatres?
