How it sounds to you or others applies just about as much as the reasoning on whether or not to get a movie cam instead of waiting 6-10 months for a dvd release. If you want it, you'll sacrifice perceived 'quality' to have at least the chance to enjoy it.

I bet this "research" had a cost of a house in central London.
Wasting tax money and making it public, they got balls!

What? If I WANT IT I'm not allowed to wait for good quality? You make no sense.

I don't watch very many movies and i don't own a television and i find netflix to cost way to much for what it has now if i was a movie junky and watch 2 or 3 movies a day then maybe its worth the price but for someone like me that only watchs a movie once a month if that id rather go to the theater and watch it or find a free movie to watch on youtube smile.gif
Netflix has one of the Austin Power's trilogy and it isn't even part 1 if I'm not mistaken. Why would anyone pay for such a small library. If I can have anything I want for free with less hassle than when I use things like Netflix why should I. I would probably pay for Netflix if they had all the movies including new stuff. The could put a fee on the new stuff because hell the only good thing about going to the Cinema is the big screen and the better than average audio.

I enjoy watching a movie on my home screen and audio set a bit more as there are no other people to ruin my day.

This is the big one.

Make all of your content easily available in all countries at all times and for all devices without the need for intrusive DRM etc.

I'd gladly watch movies at home on my 55" rather than in a cinema but guess what? First off, most streaming services don't work here, secondly the movies are about 2-3 months late here.

I do not think that they do not realise this. In fact I would not be surprised if they'd rather do this, but doing so would eradicate cinema's. People would lose their jobs, the economy might decline (not everyone has a kickass A/V-set).

There's a certain responsibility tied to these studios, cinemas are still going strong so why ditch that income just because some people are ranting about wanting to stay in?

Streaming is more convenient but more expensive and less lucrative, I'd much rather pay 15$ for a whole library of movies than just for one. But it also means less money for the studios etc.

Keeping a broken battle plan just because you would otherwise lose jobs is ridiculous. Workers are taking automation away from the world. (You see what I did there? tongue.gif ) We should be glad we can do the total amount of work with less people and deploy the extra people we no longer need to another problem.

Plenty of problems to solve

There's no problem. You are making it a problem because you much rather consume stuff at home than in a cinema. That is fine, you'll just have to wait. You don't want to do that, that doesn't mean it is a problem.

You are approaching this with tunnel vision, this is all about usability and convenience, nothing more.

Exactly.. I'd gladly pay a day one movie stream. Who wants to go to the movies nowadays when every movie buff has a 55+ TV. I myself would rather kick back with my dog, food in front of my 70 any day then go to a theatre pay outrageous and still have to sit next to annoying "I actually would rather text" people.
