Alternative Video Killed the Video Store

Back in the early days of commercial Video on Demand (circa 1999), when I was with the on-demand, Application Service Provider, DemandVideo, one of the benchmarks for our success was the demise of a video store.   That is, we knew that if a video store went out of business because of what we were doing, we were changing the status quo.
