i agree. people need to realize that in this digital age, the value of
things drops significantly when supply is near limitless. i am not asking for freebies, but c'mon. a downloadable movie should be be like $0.99. i'm sorry that you won't make as much, but this is economics 101. false scarcity is rubbish. what are they gonna do in the future when nearly anything will be able to be replicated with the push of a button?

agreed. prices are extreeeemely high! are they paying high street rents? absolutely not. it's a bank of servers on an edge of town industrial estate.
I was expecting a quarter of the price at the most and was going to check out the website after a quick read of this but not even going to bother now.

Agree with all the folks who have commented: the fee for movie downloads is entirely too high. I am not prepared to pay more for what I'd pay with a Netflix or Blockbuster rental subscription on a per movie basis, i.e., $2 or $3 max. DivX has been a huge disappointment, first by shutting down its popular online video streaming website, and now this unseemly gouging. I'd sooner go to Bestbuy or Costco and buy the DVD outright and own it permanently.
