Why do we still live in a day and age where we can watch whatever we want, whenever we want, but are still being charged to watch pilots?
On occasion, when a new show releases you can find the first episode for free on ITunes or Google Play for an extremely limited time. I have yet to find a show past its first season that still offers the first episode for free. Take a hint from the mobile marketplace, Micro Transactions WORK!
This is a pretty simple concept:
Put up at least the first episode for free.
Get people hooked. Make bank!
It is amazing how many new shows I have experienced on Netflix because I can start from the beginning. I don’t want to jump in halfway through a season or even worse, season 5. I am not going to pay just to see if I like your show when there are so many more that I can discover for free. If content is worth it, I will pay, but you need to sell me on it first.
Make your amazing content accessible with the first episode for free Permanently. Then people will pay to watch.
