In looking at the industry volumes and project adoption rates in earlier posts, it would seem quite obvious that failing to seize the opportunity for this kind of on-demand video service revenue would be short-sighted business judgment.
To further segregate myself from any interest or emotional equity on the subject....please note that you can count my PPV orders over the past 3 years on your hands...and have a couple of fingers left - not exactly a huge adopter.
Yes I am not so blind as not to see that there is indeed a tangible market, a growing market, and much more than chump change at stake to seize for those offering such a service. Over a Billion in revenue and only a few to cash in on it - seems like a bandwagon most smart providers would jump upon.
It won't make me rush out to order Cinema movies left and right, but many others will likely enjoy the freedom and ease to order many more flicks with just a remote in hand. No one at DBSTalk represents the viewer population, certainly not me. On the other hand, there are plenty of stats already posted in the last 24 hours in this thread to substantiate its much more than a 5% adoption rate.
Perhaps the exact % or $$$ is not really all that important - just that its coming, will likely bring in more revenue than most of us know, and simply compliment the other choices we have in viewing.
Agree... It's all about the possible revenue but the current numbers that I said are still probably right and very close to 1%
I still think that the reason You, Me and the other 75% of people on this forum don't purchase movies is simply price and as long as they dont address that issue it's probably never going to grow by much.
