Could Amazon's Disc+ On Demand rescue DVD sales?

Selling DVDs is a tough business. Just ask movie studio execs, who have watched as digital downloads and cheap rentals have cut into what was once a far more lucrative business. DVD sales started declining years ago and the pace of the decline isn't slowing. In the first half of the year, sales fell more than 13%.

So what's a studio exec to do? Right now, some seem willing to do whatever it takes to beat back the rise of rentals. But perhaps they should instead be having lunch on a regular basis with Jeff Bezos as a new Amazon.com promotion might be worth a look as a new business model.
