Are Online Movies Ready For Prime Time?

from the of-course-not dept

As Hollywood continues to fret about all that scary internet “piracy” they’re finally going to start testing a service for watching movies online. Like the various “official” online music services, they’re going to offer overpriced, difficult to use services, and then when no one signs up, declare failure while blaming all the online file trading systems for making it impossible to create a legitimate service. They also don’t seem willing to admit that most people don’t necessarily want to watch tiny movies on their computer screen.
