Who would pay to buy a movie when you can download and watch it on your computer/TV/phone ext… for FREE. This caused most movie and television studios to make changes, which were in early 2006, where major movie and TV studios reached agreements with sites such as CinemaNow and Movielink, which has since been acquired by blockbuster, to sell movies online via download.
The competition was very weak and it did not offer the same selection of new movies as Blockbuster. Blockbuster had its way of making the rules and customer did not have a better alternative. Since Blockbuster had strong ties with production studios, it almost had a monopoly on the video rental business, especially for newly released movies. In the beginning this model was very successful. It was so successful that Blockbuster opened thousand of stores worldwide.

In the trailer for this film Hitchcock strolls along the set of the film, giving the audience a tour of the Psycho set, and almost giving away spoiler details, but he never quite goes that far. Hitchcock teases the audience, and the audience don’t know what to expect from a film with such a strange trailer.

It would be impossible to send a fully uncompressed high definition movie directly to your home, whether or not it is 3D, because the amount of data is staggering. In order to make the files smaller and able to be sent in small pieces, companies like Netflix use compression formats such as MPEG or AVI which use special technologies that result in smaller files. This involves limiting the bit depth for colors in a way that humans don’t really perceive, as well as comparing individual frames to the ones ahead of and before it so that only the differences have to be shown.
