    There is also a few rebel producers this year who are fighting a totally set in tradition in Hollywood which is to release movies in theaters, then later on video, then PPV, then pay movie network, then cable.. it has been like that for years and they think they make the most money like this.

    Those producers are releasing their movie at the same time in theaters, dvd and on PPV. I think that is wonderful, and it really gives customers choice.

    Some movies you really, really want to see in theater, to fully experience it... as a new parent, I can now appreciate also PPV, since it is very difficult to attend a movie with the family. If I can see a movie when it comes out, at home, rather than wait over 6 months, I'll pay extra!

    And not only that... think about the emotional side of things. Sometimes when you are coming out of the theater, excited about a movie.. isn't it just possible that you'll get taken in and buy the DVD right away if it is available?

    it certainly doesn't sound like a necessary decrease in revenue to me.
