HBO to the Internet
January 30, 2008 | POSTED BY DOMINIC SCHULTE IN GIVE ME MORE INTERNETS!
HBO will soon make many of their shows and movies available on the Internet
[reuters.com] for no additional charge, similar to what many other channel are already doing. In related moves, Wal-Mart recently suspended Internet movie rentals and Apple added movie rentals to its iTunes store.
While people are undoubtedly interested in accessing this type of content on-demand over the Internet, I wonder whether Wal-Mart's move indicates an unwillingness in consumers to pay for such services. It will be interesting to see whether Apple has better success with their movie rentals.
