    Interesting internet/movie poll

    I came across this poll on the www.canoe.ca site (Canadian daily newspaper site) anyway it asks would you download a movie on your PC for $3.49? so far its leaning toward no but this brings up some interesting ramifications for our beloved hobby.

    Posted my no vote. Don't like the "buy it for a period of time" stuff. Too close to DIVX.

      yeah that was my thoughts to and I'm hapy to see thats the popular oppinion so far...I wonder though as download speed limitations start to diminish will this start to be a more popular option?

        I just went and added my "no" vote also...there's just something about seeing a movie library that's kinda nice. If I enjoy a movie I'll watch it more than once or twice, I can't see paying over and over for a movie, there are some that I'd eventually end up paying much more than $25 for.

          i also voted "no." they say it's near dvd quality, and that sounds interesting, but unless i had my computer hooked up to a large screen in my living room or if i were to pull my couch up to the computer, it's just not a comfortable option.
          Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
          That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

            Nope, not gonna do it. I hated DIVX. I know I'd hate this even more. For those of us that can't afford the DSL high-life, the download could only be atrocious.

              Near DVD quality with 500 mB instead of 4.7GB? I don't think so- what we're talking about here is VCD quality. Heck, I'm just an old fashioned guy- just say "NO!" to pay per view.

              Regards,
