Popcorn Not Included

A new startup backed by Sean Parker wants to bring movies to your living room on the same day they’re released in theaters. But the industry won’t make it easy. “Screening Room would charge about $150 for access to the set-top box that transmits the movies and charge $50 per view.” So the guy who brought us Napster and let us get music for free now wants to give us a movie for fifty bucks. Don’t you love progress?
