Following up on this, Universal has decided to pull a Netflix and not-do-what-they-just-said-they-were-going-to-do.
In this case though, what they were going to do was an supremely awful idea: trying to get people to pay $60 to watch a movie at home while it’s in theaters.
Apparently, the cost wasn’t the issue for Universal, it was the threatened boycotts from theater chains.
Ha. What an industry.
