But seriously though, why CAN’T movies in theaters be purchased for at-home viewing at the same time? What about people who have crazy work schedules, or social anxiety, or are recovering from surgery, or have new babies, severe peanut allergies, crippling mysophobia, or another one of the literally HUNDREDS of reasons that people never end up going to movie theaters?
You can rent movies through, among other, iTunes and Amazon. But why do we have to wait for the same schedule as the DVD release for a good percentage of movies? Surely this would only help the struggling film industry, since easily accessible legal downloads would surely be a better alternative to shitty cams.
