I absolutely love this concept...except the price. $24.95 a show? That's an insane price to pay, despite all the awesome features. I could see this being huge, if they found a way to get it around $5.99. I find it hard to believe a ton of people will shell out $25 for one show. The features are cool and all, but you could get Showtime for two months at that price.
