Will collapsed VOD windows help studios this holiday season?
Ten years after the Napster Revolution, digital media is wreaking havoc on Hollywood and the book world. All the old assumptions and biz models are being tested. It’s amazing to watch. Even I did not realize how much studios had been collapsing DVD to VOD windows this year — and the trend has only accelerated in recent months.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: This is going to be a VERY interesting holiday shopping period for studios. Very curious to see how many discs consumers buy and how many choose to rent discs or order up the same movie on VOD.
