  Video On Demand Finally Arrives?
Posted by Syrah Merlot on 2001/01/18 12:52:24 US/Eastern

In a week, Miramax is going to try an experiment where you can download a full-length movie for a 24-hour license in "near-DVD quality" for $3.49. The first one looks like a pretty lousy flick, but still, it looks interesting enough to try. What are the odds that people will be able to figure out how to thwart the 24-hour limit? (Would resetting your computer's clock be enough to do it?)More info about this and the plans of other studios:http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2001/01/17/financial1840EST0211.DTL&nl=fix

I'll put 1000 to 1 odds that 24 hours after this is posted, it will be cracked :)
