Theaters vs. Legal Streams
In an attempt to curb piracy, Sony and Disney are trying a new approach
to their film distribution by providing legal streams of films still playing in theaters.
If you really wanna see Title X without paying $15 for an overpriced ticket and popcorn, these two companies are adopting this alternative.
This tactic makes me curious: If this proves successful, could this mean the death of theaters as we know it? I could see theater owners losing a lot of money (and jobs) if this becomes widespread. Also, would YOU personally adopt it? Even though it may be more expensive, would you miss watching theaters on a wall-sized screen in surround sound?
