Would you spend $50 to stream the latest movies? Napster co-founder Sean Parker hopes so.
Parker is working on a new project, called the Screening Room, that would allow users to pay to watch movies from home on the same day they're released in theaters, according to Variety, which was briefed on the idea. The films would cost $50 per view, and would run on a $150 set-top box that would stream the movies over the Internet to users' homes. In comparison, an individual movie ticket can cost anywhere from a few dollars to $30, depending on the theater.
