Ever since the The Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter Campaign was funded, fans that aren’t lucky enough to live in US have wondered when or if they would actually get to see the film they paid to support. Fears were alleviated when it was announced that Veronica Mars will be available to EVERYONE on March 14 through participating cable and satellite TV providers, as well as various digital media platforms.
Basically, on March 14, the day the film is released in cinemas, Veronica Mars will be available to rent or buy from digital retailers AND on demand through several cable and satellite providers, worldwide. So that means that even if you don’t happen to live near a theater that’s showing the film, you still have the opportunity to see it as soon as possible, which is really kind of cool and completely unprecedented.
It speaks to the essence of this project that they so determined to be fair to every single one of the fans that invested in the film. It also indicates just how savvy the people involved are. By allowing the film to be PURCHASED online, they are giving fans the ability to financially support something they have proven they will pay for. I hope this shows that fans are willing to PAY when the opportunity prevents itself, but when they really want to see something they will use less reputable means if necessary.
The Veronica Mars movie is currently available for pre-order on Amazon Instant Video. Information about other sites, such as: Flixster, Best Buy Cinema Now, iTunes, Vudu, Xbox Video and Sony Entertainment Network, will be available closer to the release date.
