Submission + - Online Streaming As Profitable as TV, Disc Sales by Charging Just a $15 Flat Fee (computerworld.com)

Lucas123 writes: A new report shows that if movie production houses charged a $15 monthly fee to just 45% of the world's online subscribers, they could rake in just as much cash as they currently do through TV downloads and disc sales. That equates to $29.4 billion. "Movie producers have little to fear from online distribution in the long term," the report states. "It is the distribution part of the movie business that should be worried because online distribution will replace a sizable portion of their current industry." According to the report's hypothetical model, the $15 fee would offer open access to all movie content — meaning instant online access to all movies that have been ever produced, "along with new releases as they come out."
