2 thoughts on “Video Downloads… Suck”

  1. Interesting study.. Just as Barrett says in the study, I do find that “niche” video download companies, such as mine, are somewhat immune to this particular issue. Though certainly not completely.
    My site launched in 2001 and our downloads sold consistently at $9.99 shortly after that. However, since the recent boom in video downloads and the low price they have come at, we have reduced our price 50% to stay competitive.. yet we never experienced a reduction of sales.
    Perhaps it’s not that video downloads suck. Perhaps they aren’t as appealing in comparison to alternatives that are generally just as easy to acquire. Perhaps it’s on over-saturation of product (mainstream) offered. (90% of my site’s content is also available on DVD, but it’s very niche.) Or.. perhaps they suck and it will drive mainstream
    video download companies into striving for a better product that will appeal to the consumer.
