Louis C.K. Will Sell His New Special Through PayPal For Five Bucks

So that new special Louis C.K. is recording at the Beacon Theater in NY next week? He just announced on Conan that starting December 10, he'll be selling it through his website for five dollars via PayPal, rather than releasing it through Netflix or HBO. An interesting move! It's definitely cool that the profits will go directly from the consumer to the creator, but you have to wonder if this means fewer people will see the thing since they can't watch it for free (well, as free as it is to subscribe to HBO or Showtime).

    Fewer people will watch it because unless they read splitsider, they won't be aware of it. He should place an ad on HBO, and really piss them off!
