Default Would You Pay $30 for a New Release Movie?

Before you try to answer that question, it might help to appreciate the entire scenario. Would you pay $30 for a brand-spanking new release - as in, not even available on DVD or Blu-ray - via an on-demand service? Oh, and it should be emphasized that this would be a $30 rental... gone once you watch it, or gone after the predetermined about of time.

30.00 is a bit steep. I'd pay 15.00 (twice the amount of a matnee ticket here) but that's about it. Of course there reason would be, because of some piracy related bs that its 30.00 and not them being greedy f's!

Definitely not. I'd say no more than $10.00.

Ha, that's funny, $30 for a rental, I can hardly justify the $5 rentals fees at blockbuster. Thats mostly why I download movies and go see ones I really want to in theater, I can't afford it. Not as a student anyways, same with music unfortunately. I wish I had money to go buy music and movies but I just can't as of now, hopefully there will be a time I can easily afford anything I would like but that is not now.
