Hollywood Considering $20-$30 Movie Theater SidestepMark Wilson5/25/10 8:55amFiled to: MoviesTime Warner CableTime Warner276EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkTime Warner Cable just pitched the major Hollywood studios a new idea: "home theater on demand." It would allow people at home to watch movies just 30 days after they're released in the theater for $20-$30.AdvertisementThis 30-day home distribution method cuts the general 4-month movie-to-DVD wait time significantly, which means that movie theaters will have more competition earlier in a film's run. (It should be noted, however, that no studio has signed any new deals just yet.)Such would be extremely bad for theater owners, as their share of ticket sales grow significantly as a film remains in theaters. It'd also be a kick in the nuts to services like Netflix, who've catered to studios' absurd requests in order to gain a pittance of access.
