Not to mention the cost. Thirty bucks or so for me and the wife is too much to take a risk on entertainment, when so much of what is produced is just garbage.
So many times I've started a "critically acclaimed" movie on a streaming service, only to abandon it within 30 minutes.
$30 is too much to spend on a one time viewing experience of a recorded program (technically there is no film, shot on video, projected digitally).
You can buy even high end DVD titles for under $30 (much less if you shop around or are willing to buy closeouts or even used discs online or locally, sometimes as low as $1-3).
Even if you gamble on a movie, watch it once, and sell it (yard sale, amazon, ebay, craigslist) you’d come out ahead.
It’s funny that even with lower than ever distribution costs, movie prices and digital albums haven’t lowered the price points to viewing/hearing the work.
