Of course it's another way for them to try to get more money from you. It would be pretty cool if I used VOD from the satellite provider.

I can see upsides and downsides to this. Since I no longer have as many chances to get out to the theater this could help me stay current. To all those who think this will kill movie house chains....come on. Nothing can beat the theater experience.

Unless you have a movie theater in your house. But most of us don't.

A decent sized TV and okay sound is so much better than a packed movie house with a mystery box of guests who may or may not destroy your movie experience.

Getting newly released movies at home rather than having to play the gamble of the movie theater is a bonus in my eyes :)

I have a pretty nice set up at home but there is something about going to the theater that's...different. I just love the experience, despite some people who might try to ruin it at times.

I'm all for a big screen HD to me it's awesome on a comfy couch.. I'm all for it. A buddy of mine has a super huge HD tv that he only gets seems almost like I'm at the theater minus the cost. Just depends on your preferences. I'd rather watch a movie at home anyway then dealing with screaming children and teens in a theater.

Cuban's company has been trying "Day and Date" releasing for a while now. Not sure what the numbers are though. Regardless, I agree that nothing can replace the theater experience.

This just screams Piracy

I had the same sentiments. I don't try the VOD just because I don't tend to sit in front of my TV...but piracy would be a huge battle.. I could only imagine all the pirated copies would be floating out there
