Studios Discuss Premium Cable Movie Service
The companies are in discussions with In Demand, a partnership of Cox Communications, Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable, Bloomberg News reported.
The new services could help offset a decline in DVD purchases. Normally, there is a lag of three or four months between a movie leaving theaters and appearing on DVD and cable.
Sony Corp. has already tested a similar service by offering the movies "Hancock" and "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" on Bravia TV for $24.95.
