not so sure it's a rich/ poor thing
also, say I want to watch a dvd again and again, there are some films I will never tire of, and I don't want to pay again and again for
also, I know it's not strictly legal anyway, but say I want to lend it to a friend or take round someone's house, sell it or swap it?
edit: oh, and also, I studied film at uni and what would happen to uni film libraries for example? try charging a student each time they do their homework (especially with the fee hikes). You'd also be taking away features like commentaries (which some people like me do watch!)
edit, edit: and say something comes up where you can't finish the film that day, i'd be irked if I had to pay to watch two halves over two days. also box sets for example. I'd rather buy a cheap series box set to watch at my leisure than pay per episode
edit, edit, edit: alright missed the flatrate bit but some of my pointes remain
