You’ve heard the name Sean Parker before…
We associate him with Facebook, but perhaps even more with..NAPSTER. He was THAT guy.
Now he’s taking another stab at bringing otherwise illegal content into your home, this time MOVIES! But he’s figured out the illegal part this time, by the looks of it.
His new start up company is called The Screening Room, “a company that offers secure, anti-piracy technology that can get a new release right into your living room, your TV room, on the day its out in theatres.”
It ain’t cheap – they charge $150 for access alone to the set up box that would give you the movie, and $50 PER view. The film would be available to you for a 48-hour period…
For a gal like me that already has trouble getting my boyfriend out to the movies, I’m so against this!!! Mr. Parker, don’t you dare try to take my thrilling over-buttery popcorn and date-night away….
Anyone know a number for Lars from Metallica?
