Movie companies just don’t get it.

Netflix is awesome. Watching instant movies at home is great and the price is perfect. Every movie should be on the service and it should work in every country. But it’s not. For some reason it doesn’t work in Europe, so it’s likely that market just pirates movies. It doesn’t have everything so you come across a movie that looks good to watch and have to wait for DVD by mail. Okay, I can see there are some restrictions and its not a perfect world. To fill in the gap you can use Amazon’s Video on Demand service, which is awesome. The price point is all out of whack though. Just looking at a preorder for Wall Street 2 through a virtual service, 14.99. That’s right, 15 bucks for a movie to own and watch online. That’s the same or more than it will be on DVD and they don’t have to come up with artwork, extra features, extra nonsense, print, package, and ship the damn thing. Its digital, its practically free to copy! If the price point were lower, maybe $5, you’d get so many more people buying your shit. But they won’t and they’ll say it doesn’t work and bitch and complain some more. But honestly, is $5 too much to pay for movie that’ll be 7.99 on DVD in a couple of months when the world is completely digital?
