They could cut it down a lot more which in hope gets the poorer people onside to subscribe because they can now afford it.
It could in the long term by reducing prices now make it more affordable to the average person it would take away the vulnerable people who have to turn to piracy in one form or another just to be able to watch?
Just noticed I omitted the word NOT in my previous post! lol
Aye, but what do Sky then tell the people that are already paying a higher subscription? Do they tell them they are not going to any reduction in price because they can obviously afford it? That's always going to be the problem with making things affordable to all.
The thing that really frustrates me with DVD / Blue Ray Costs is the difference in geographical pricing. For instance, a new Hollywood blockbuster movie released on BR in the USA might cost $15.00, but in the UK we have to pay £15. Nearly a difference of £4.00 for exactly the same product.
Add to that, when buying a digital movie from iTunes, Amazon, Sky Store or whoever you are tied to using each of their dedicated players to view the content you have paid for. Who realistically wants to do that? It's this restriction in itself that makes Kodi so appealing for many users. A single interface they can refer too for all their content.
Plus there is absolutely no guarantee the content you paid for to use on these dedicated players will actually be available to play for ever and ever if they suddenly stopped or changed their current service. In essence you are not paying for you're own personal copy of a digital movie. You are actually paying for a long term rental of a movie until such time that the terms of service might change. Imagine if you spent £6000 on digital movie downloads, only to discover that in 3 years time the terms of service might have changed and none of content you thought you owned will now play on these dedicated players?
