Re: Doctor Who fans get hosed

To be fair, if you think about it it really is up to the studios.

"Our show is really popular, so lets jack up the price because we know the fans will pay it."

or

"Our show is really popular, so lets sell it at a reasonabble price. We'll make our money through volume sales."


And of course,


"Not many people know about our show. Lets sell it cheap to encourage sales."

or

"Not many people know about our show. Lets sell it at a premium to make up for all the extra work and expense we went through to bring this hard to find program over. Besides. How else are you going to see it?"
