In trying to secure legal online content, a comparison site might be helpful where you can type in the name of a film and have a list of providers which detail the cost and quality of the movie in question. A service which informs viewers of the price and availability of accessing online entertainment. The Digital Content Guide misses this vital component and lacks a marketing strategy to re-educate consumers about the options available for legal downloads.
We’re always hearing about how one of the reasons for online piracy is that digital entertainment isn’t available in a cheap, timely and legal fashion.
The Digital Content Guide lists the legal options available in Australia. Think that might be helpful? Think again.
Launched yesterday, the Digital Content Guide is a web site listing services in Australia which offer legal access to streaming or download content. Music, movies, TV (with a separate breakout for sport) and games are already covered, and ebooks are promised in the near future. The site has been jointly developed by APRA AMCOS, ARIA, ASIA, the Copyright Agency, News Corp, Foxtel and Village Roadshow.
The intent might be worthy, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. You can browse by category and see everything listed, but if you want to know if a particular show or movie is available, or how much a particular service costs, you’re out of luck. All you have is a link to the service itself, so you’ll have to do your own research.
