    "Washington, D.C. (October 6, 2011) -- Universal Pictures and Comcast are teaming to test a $60 Video on Demand service later this year for films that were released in the theaters just three weeks prior.

    The trial, which follows a failed $30 VOD service tested by several studios and DIRECTV earlier this year, will launch with the Eddie Murphy comedy Tower Heist. The film will be released in movie theaters on November 4 and then offered as a $60 VOD selection on November 23 to Comcast subscribers in Atlanta and Portland, Oregon who have a High-Definition TV."

    Full article is here. Emphasis mine.

    Whoa. I have to agree with Swanni that this is another non-starter. But good luck with that, and pass the popcorn! :eek2:

    I may not be the sharpest spoon in the drawer, but if $30 is too much, not quite sure how $60 is better. :scratch:
