Maybe it's bad for theaters but it's good for us? Maybe it will cause theaters to get more innovative? Or maybe they will just be forced to raise their prices more? Who knows. But not only is it $4 cheaper for you to rent that movie than to go to the theater, but you can have as many friends over to watch it as you want! That's a steal if you ask me.

It might hurt the theaters themselves, but to keep competitive, maybe they'll actually lower the prices on a dang movie ticket.
With gas prices and such rising higher, it's probably a really good idea to offer services like this. You can do so much with it. A Family night, or maybe a 'couples' night, and show kids movies or romantic comedies. I see this as a good step.

Oh I thought it was good to for everyone accept those who might lose jobs. Like I said I over analyze and for some reason it surprised me they would do this... But now that I think about it maybe they did it on purpose to get more people to watch these movies by making them available at home as well.
