If you could pay more to stream Avengers: Endgame and other new movies opening weekend on Netflix, would you do it? We definitely would!

How much would you be willing to pay to stream new movies like Avengers: Endgame on Netflix or another streaming service over opening weekend? Based on my recent experience, I’d be willing to pay quite the pretty penny for this movie.

Like millions of other Marvel fans, I had trouble getting tickets to Avengers: Endgame. All the showtimes I wanted were already sold out, and I had to settle for a morning showtime. During the process, I just kept thinking to myself about how great it would be to watch the movie at home on Friday, April 26, and forget about this mess.

That’s when I started thinking about how much I would have to pay to watch Avengers: Endgame and other new movies on Netflix and other streaming services from the company of my own home on opening weekend. It’d definitely cost more than going to the movies, but it might be worth the hassle.

I like going to movies, but I’m not Team Movies-Need-To-Be-Watched-In-Theaters. It’s a better experience, overall, and that’s great for those who have enough time to swing it. There are other factors at play in people’s lives that limit them from going to the theater to watch a movie all the time, especially in 2019 which has an incredible number of good movies on the way.

While I think entertainment is moving this way, I think it will be a very long time until it happens. It was recently reported that movie theater ticket sales are increasing. More people are going to see movies around the world, and that’s not going to change anytime soon. It’s still a long way off, but it’s not stopping my imagination.

For the sake of hypotheticals, let’s imagine there was a world in which studios released major movies on Netflix and other streaming services as soon as they were in theaters. The new movies were not included in your subscription, so you’d pay to watch the movie one time, just like you do at the theaters. How much would you feel comfortable paying?

Would you pay $25, the same price you’d pay for the Blu-ray a few months later? Would you pay $50, four or five times the cost of the ticket? Would you pay $100 to watch the movie from home on opening weekend?

Obviously, the studio has to charge a bigger price to make sure you aren’t paying $10 for a movie that you’ll watch with 10 people. That’d cost the studio more than $100. Going to the theater costs between $10-20, typically, so I’m officially ruling out $25 or $50 for Endgame. Those prices could work for other movies.

This is an interesting scenario. And, I think it all depends on the movies, of course. Big, blockbuster movies like the Marvel movies, Star Wars movies, other major Disney movies, and other that are selling out theaters opening weekend are the ones I’d pay for, obviously, out of convenience.

As mentioned, I struggled to find tickets for Avengers: Endgame, and it was mostly because I wanted to reserve my seat. Not every theater offers that service. Luckily, AMC does, so I have to go a little out of my way, but it’s much better than waiting in line for an hour (or more!) to get a seat with friends and family that’s not in the front row of the theater.

For smaller movies, I’d like to watch from the comfort of my home because I’m lazy and that seems cool to me! In other words, I’d definitely stream new movies opening weekend if I could. And, I’d pay willing to pay a premium for that service.

For Avengers: Endgame, I think I’d pay $100 to watch the movie at home and not worry about the crowds and missing action to get more snacks or take bathroom breaks. Have a few friends and family members chip in like a pay-per-view fight and bring some snacks, and I’d come out close to even.

I love the theater experience for movies like Endgame, but let’s not pretend sold out movie theaters are exactly enjoyable. Everything takes forever, and I just want to be locked in on this movie without everything else.

Again, I don’t feel that way about all movies. This one is more important, and that’s why I’d pay the extra dollars to make my experience more enjoyable for this movie.
