    I am regular customer with Apple TV, VUDU and my Fios on demand. Lately I found that some movies go for as much as $20 and the only option is to buy it. Not that these movies in huge demand, these are the movies that do very bad in box office sales, so they are trying to make a buck selling it as "currently in theaters". It does not matter if there some kind of famous celebrity in the move, it just does not sell. Who gives them the right to charge $20 from cable company customers. I find it ridiculous.

    First of all, welcome to the group.

    As to your question, they have to charge a certain amount to keep theatre owners happy. The last thing they want to do is charge too little and keep people away from the theatres (which has had a huge year). Personally, I just wait until the movie arrives on one of the services or at the library. With all of the deals Netflix / Amazon / Hulu have been cutting, there is not much not eventually available on one of them.
