I think that anyone criticizing Google's Pay Per View efforts is just looking for any publicity. There is no question that Google can be successful with an on demand online offering. The only issue is Google's commitment to the program. Given that the studios release all the movies to most everyone at once (or will do that shortly), its going to come down to the marketing, business model and promotion to determine success.
One great advantage Google has is its technical prowess. They truly have the strongest and most reliable video platform on the net.
I look forward to lots of great choices online!
