    I guess. Maybe they’ll parter with a retailer.

    No matter who buys it the consumer will be screwed somehow. This is America in the 21st century. These companies just sell themselves around to make sure quarterly earnings reports look good. No one gives a damn about consumers and their video collections and happiness.

    Fandango really has an opportunity to be something.

    I have always thought Apple Movies and Google Play have the advantage because they are pre-installed on 99% of devices in the world (why even search for a 3rd party app if you are most of those users).

    But Fandango can get users long before a movie comes to digital - they can get them at the theater. Buy a movie ticket on Fandango for $10 or buy a ticket+digital for $20. Apple and Google wouldn't have a chance at the sale.

    Ive noticed that’s happened to some degree with Fandango, as well as the major chains themselves. If you saw three Sony movies at Regal this summer, for instance, you got free digital copies of them when they came out for home streaming. At Fandango, for every $50 you spend, you get a $5 coupon that can be for a discount on a movie ticket or towards a digital purchase.
