Opposition To DirecTV VOD Service Increases

A number of directors are stating their opposition to the new VOD (video on demand) service to be offered by DirecTV. Among them: James Cameron, who notes that many theater owners feel the economic pressure from such a service, which allows consumers to see some feature films in their homes only 60 days after movie releases. Previously, such films were available 120 days after big screen release. More here from The Hollywood Reporter. The New York Times has coverage of the new DirecTV service here.
