Well, I was hoping for 8-9 but TNA has their individual plans. I will give Auto his due if this turns out to be a big game changer for TNA in the PPV market.
I love the concepts that they are rehashing for the monthly On Demand videos. I also expect these to be running the same amount as the Unfinished Business specials and paying $10.99 for one of these events will definitely be worth it. Hell, even if they drop it by $15, it's still only $20 for a good-great 3 hours of wrestling. The separation in events allows for consumers to purchase the ones directed to their interest and depending on how well they are pull off, it could lead into more buys for some of the ones the individual consumer isn't as interested in.
All in all, I am glad TNA cut the PPV down. When the exchange over cutting PPVs came between Auto and me, there was a difference in the amount of income they'd have to generate to still turn a profit. Adding these monthly specials is an option neither Auto nor I saw, but I think it provides the perfect chance for TNA to still generate revenue from the On Demand market even after taking such a substantial cut in their monthly PPV income. Time will tell on how well this idea pans out, but I give TNA the credit for trying to adapt to a change in demand from their core audience. Hopefully, moving it to 4 will allow for much more depth in angle development and get some of the "petty" fans to quit bitching when Kenny King fights RVD the Impact before a PPV to set up a PPV match.
I doubt it will help these "petty" fans, but I still have hope, dammit!
