$5.99 a movie, that is highway robbery as i can get movies on demand from my isp provider for less cost.. somebody sure wants to make money but they sure won't do it by charging that kinda fee per movie.

Why the hell are they charging by a per movie basis? They better just do a monthly membership fee like Netflix with unlimited streaming. Charging per movie is old school, like a retail blockbuster. No one wants to pay that much anymore.
I agree. 6 bucks per movie is not even competitive with other rental/VOD options.
