Universal Pictures and Comcast are testing out a new concept that will allow you to watch a movie that’s still in theaters from your living room couch.
The only catch?
It’s going to cost you $60.
Comcast cable customers with a high-definition TV in Portland, Oregon and Atlanta can test out the service starting Nov. 23 with Tower Heist, starring Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. You have a 48-hour window to watch an unlimited number of times.
I can see this concept working for families. When you factor in the cost of parking, four tickets and food, $60 is a steal.
In the future, let’s hope the film selections are better than Tower Heist. You would have to pay me $60 to sit through that one.
