I wonder how long can one keep the Prima Cinema viewing window open?
Hi Peter, that's right and I remember discussing the (your) proposal with several friends and the decision to participate required:
1. At least four major studios supporting content.
2. Allowing a persistant copy of the content (stored as you indicated).
3. Reasonable cost structure, which frankly wasn't the case in that original proposal. I think it was the significant annual cost that caused the most grief. This new idea limits the initial outlay to $20K, which is acceptable to at least three of my friends (and me), BUT they need more studio support AND the persistant copy is still an as issue.
