I can’t find a page to link to for this, but in Wal-Mart last night I saw a DVD in the magazine rack. Apparently you can get an “issue” of E! on DVD for $4.96.
I don’t exactly know what this consists of, but from the case it appeared to be something like an episode of Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight. Just one episode, like a magazine issue, I guess.
Will this fly? The price is comparable to a magazine, and I’m thinking the DVD would be just as cheap to produce as a 70-page paper product.
I remember when CD-ROM was the big new technology, there were a handful of magazines that got issued on CDs for a multimedia-ish experience. Every single one of them crashed and burned. Is a DVD any different, really?
