in reply to Seeking Programmers.

So what is Flying Car Television? The core idea of FCTV (Flying Car Television) is quite simple. Independent TV show producers create new and original programming, Viewers pick which shows they want to watch, FCTV puts those shows on a DVD and ships it to to the viewer, the viewer pays for these shows and the producer gets paid for producing

Well from watching what is going on in terms of Hollywood trying to stop illicit movie and DVD sharing, I would be surprised if you sold more than 1 copy of any DVD. So where will the profits for the programmer come from?

    Because the DVDs are individually produced piracy tracking will be comparatively simple. see Steganography

    If an episode of a copyrighted work is found in an unauthorized channel, then all copies of the next episode of that program can be tagged. When that episode appears we will know exactly which subscriber is breaking his agreement. Remedies could vary from cancellation of subscription to contacting legal authorities.
