Just read in a video business magazine where I work. Apparently Circuit City is going to try something new here soon. Now its only going to be test marketed in two areas and I don't know which two, but they're going to try what is known as DIVX, a special DVD player. Formerly known as Zoom TV, you will be able to purchase a disposable rental DVD for 5 dollars. You purchase it and watch it once. After that if you play it again you get charged for it. This special DVD player hooks up to your phone line which the company downloads how many times you watch a particular DVD. After you watch it you throw it away. Why is this on an Indiana Jones website??? One of the many major companies that's going to licence out for these disposable DVD's is,yep you guessed it, Paramount. If this is their initial jump into DVD, their regular DVD's hopefully won't be too far behind
