Yi-Tan Call 282: The Future of Movies

Are you a Netflix customer, or do you download from BitTorrent? Did you watch the 3D version of Avatar, with the special glasses on?

There’s a battle on for our movie-viewing eyeballs. The most optimistic players hope that “enhanced” versions of movies will become the default, the way Starbucks turned the corner diner’s $.25 coffee into a $3 experience. The future of on-demand home viewing is also up in the air.

With Coburn Ventures’ Brynne Thompson and Dave Bujnowski, let’s discuss:

  • Is 3D a passing fad? Will movie theaters be around in 10 years?
  • How will we be viewing movies in five years?
  • Where do Coinstar, CinemaNow, BestBuy, HBO and others fit?
