The movie industry is unsurprisingly split over Sean Parker's recently revealed streaming service, Screening Room.
The service would let people watch new theatrical releases from home for $50 a film and the cost of a $150 set-top box.
It's got the support of some heavyweight creators, like Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and J.J. Abrams. Abrams recently addressed his support for the service at CinemaCon, saying the industry has to adapt to keep itself viable.
