Reports are going around that Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and Disney are in talks with cable TV systems to offer films for as much as $30 per show soon after they run in theaters, a move which would see new movies reach home viewers without having to wait the typical three or four months for DVDs or cable companies’ on-demand shows. According to the report, Disney is also discussing the possibility of streaming films on Web-connected devices such as the Xbox and PlayStation 3 consoles. Does this mean that we’ll be able to get on-demand viewing of films soon after they’re launched in theaters? It seems like there will be an awful lot of red tape involved, but hopefully everything will work out fine for the end user.
