Hollywood directors Christopher Nolan and Jon Favreau have joined the growing list of film industry names opposed to the introduction of a so-called premium VODÂ window that sees films made available to pay TV subscribers only two months after their theatrical release.
The protest follows the announcement of plans by a number of pay TV operators to introduce premium VOD services based on a payment of about US$30 (Â20) per movie, led by Time Warner Cable. Studios backing the idea are Fox, Disney, Universal and Warner Bros.
Premium VOD has met with hostility from exhibitors including AMC Entertainment and Regal Entertainment. Other directors opposed to the idea include Quentin Tarantino and M Night Shyamalan.Â
