All those companies sinking hundreds of millions of dollars into video downloading business, wait up, and listen to what people are saying and what they really want. A survey by Parks Associates shows that only 16% of US consumers who downloaded videos say the selection of videos available online is good, and only 13% say video downloads are sold at a reasonable price. In other words, the majority think downloads are too expensive and they suck.
“People don’t see a reason to use video downloading services,” said John Barrett, director of research at Parks Associates. “Sure, it saves a trip to the video store, but it takes longer, looks worse, and you end up watching it on a 17′ screen. No wonder consumers are dissatisfied with the experience.”
