Mainstream Pay Per View Comes to Internet
Monday 16 July 2001 21:56:00 by Andrew Ferguson

MSN are to host the first global pay per view event on the Internet at 7.30pm on Tuesday night.

The event in question is an Elton John concert LIVE from Ephesus in Turkey. In theory it's an ideal opportunity for ADSL to show it's capabilities, though the price is likely to discourage most people - $14.99 (~£10) for the 300kbps feed and $9.99 for a 100kbps feed.

Whether the UK market is ready for this sort of charge for online video is unclear, we will just have to see what viewing figures MSN come up with after the event.
