, users get access to bonus materials on the DVDs such as sheet music, lesson guides and audio files.

According to Randy Whiting, CEO of Music Enthusiast Television, “Two major issues with digital delivery of video have been the problems associated with downloading large video files and dealing with digital rights management. Users have made it very clear they don't want to wait for downloads and they don't want limitations imposed on their videos with digital rights management. At the same time, video producers and artists want to make sure their content is controlled and not inappropriately copied and distributed. In the past, its been difficult, if not impossible, to effectively solve both issues in a consumer-friendly way.”
, the issues of having to download huge video files to a computer have been completely eliminated. Additionally, the Buy|Store|Stream™
service has multiple levels of digital safeguards that protect against inappropriate copying without taking anything away from the user's overall experience.
Tim Herr, VP of Technology for Music Enthusiast, explained that Music Enthusiast is powered by a fully secure digital media eCommerce and delivery platform that allows videos to be safely sold and viewed over the Internet. “We've designed our platform not only to protect our content partners, but also to give our users a simple a straight forward way to find, buy and view their DVDs over the Internet,” said Herr. He further stated “The Buy|Store|Stream™
platform was designed to support our current “buy-to-own”
business model but will enable us to offer additional business models in the near future for monetized video content including rental, pay-per-view and subscriptions.”
