MOVIE ACTOR Kevin Spacey would solve the so-called 'piracy' problem by releasing anything all at once on everything.
Spacey, who leads Netflix's on-demand and well received exclusive House of Cards TV show has been interviewed by the Guardian Newspaper.
There the man who is on a streaming only TV show said that Hollywood should release content to cinemas and on-demand channels at the same time.
"Why is Game of Thrones the most pirated show in the history of TV? Because people can't get it fast enough, that's why," said Spacey.
"I believe if you go to a movie theatre and you see something you think is incredible, if you walk out of the theatre and there was a bin in the lobby of DVDs of the film you just watched, you would buy four of them - one for you and three for your friends."
Spacey has experience of this and was in a low budget film Margin Call that was released at cinemas and on DVD simultaneously.
"I believe the notion of being able to convince theatre owners that we can open a movie online, in the movie theatres, on DVD on the same day, that is probably where it is leading. That would be a huge bite out of piracy; if it is all available no one is stealing it before someone else gets it," he said.
"It did very well in both those places. I believe that is where it will probably end up heading. It will also be cost effective, in terms of four [marketing] campaigns instead of one. People say, if you open a movie online at the same time as in movie theatres, no one is going to go to the movies. That's just not true. People love to go out and have a shared experience, they always will." µ
