For the satellite &/or Cable enabled persons with DVRs, there are Hi-Def channels such as TMC, Showtime, HBO, etc that allow you to record all you can eat for a monthly charge. And it won't self destruct like PPV films usually do. I use this as a source for films not on physical media, such as one of my Favorite films - "The Devil's Disciple" starring B Lancaster. I believe Streaming is/will become a PPV type situation. If I want over a period of time view a film 20 times, I REFUSE to pay for it 20 times.
Yes, "The Devil's Disciple" was a great unappreciated film. Lancaster, Douglas, and Olivier in a Shaw play- who can ask for more? I hope all the Lancaster-Douglas films make it to Blu-ray: Gunfight at OK Corral, Seven Days in May, Devil's Disciple, List of Adrian Messenger. Twilight Time interest?
