I did find a post regarding when movies are released on demand but I could not find the answer to the ‘In Theatres Now’ for 7.99 release dates. Which movies can you watch that are in theatres? How long after can you view them or rent them.
I guess for example lets say the new Star Wars film coming out in a week, how long after could I purchase the ‘In Theatres Now’ on demand to view this movie. I see its 7.99 than the regular movies at 4.99.
You can find the movies available to order by going on channel 100 > Movies > In Theatres Now
The “In Theatres Now” collection presents movies on Rogers On Demand the same day as the movie plays in theatres.
Hope this answers your questions
I know it IS in ontario.. may not be on the east coast though, etc.
BUT.. be warned.. its not THAT great of a service.
Dont expect, at least at this time, to see big blockbusters like star wars on there.
MOST of the stuff i have seen on there so far, are all your B grade movies.. your almost direct to dvd type ones.
just viewed what was available...none were antying you would want to watch...and the vast majority have long since been released on video.........very disappointing
I do remember reading an article on this a while back.
Rogers is/has been wanting.. what their ULTIMATE goal is... to yes.. be able to offer movies that are in the theatre aavailable at home.
Yes.. might cost $20 to rent at home.. but still cheaper than buying 2+ movie tickets.. no expenisive food, no needing to pay for a babysitter, etc.
BUT.. rogers isnt the only party involved here
For them to be able to do this, the studios who are releasing the videos, need to agree to this as well, etc.
THAT is where likely the bigest roadblock is.
The stuff that is on there, is only stuff that they have been able to get the rights too.
