$60 home movie? Comcast tests option in Atlanta, Portland

FRESNO, California

Film buffs wills soon have that option, but at a pretty hefty price, $60.00 for a single movie.

The test will be available to Comcast subscribers in Atlanta and Portland.

They'll be able to rent the movie and watch it unlimited times in a 48-hour window. The idea is to target families who might pay just as much on tickets, popcorn and a babysitter.

Studios are looking for ways of generating new revenue as DVD sales sag but want to avoid hurting box office revenue.

The test begins November 23rd. Would you try it?
