Pope TV

With the announcement of the new video ipod, I'm thinking this will be a great way for people to download my weekly speeches and see me in action. I just need to decide on a price. Television show dowloads cost $1.99 per episdode, but what could I charge? I'm not offering cheap entertainment, I'm offering blessings. I think I could charge at least $5.00 per speech and $10.00 per mass. I could also offer a short weekly blessing for $1.00. I need to talk with my agent.

I'm thinking you could do a subscription service. Like XM Radio or DirecTV. You could have The Mass Channel, The Blessing Network, The Pope Sings The Classic Hymns, Psalm-Net, you get the idea. The worshippers could get just the channels/downloads that they want, or go for the Total Pope Package.

Your Holiness

Whatever you charge, it will be too much. The Catholic Church just makes too damn much $$$$.
I know a local priest who charges $200 for sex. That's way too much. The Methodists are a lot more reasonable.

yours in service

Your Holiness, how about Pope Joe Bloopers? That whole thing with the duvet cover must have been pretty hilarious.

Oh! I love the blooper idea! Go with it Your Holiness!

But back to your original idea: Don't go cheap. That will look trashy. You are the BIG guy. What would the Stones charge? Madonna? You deserve as much as they would get.

How about selling absolutions? You could charge $10 per sin, and really rake in the cash! Maybe you could market them as indulgen...never mind.

If I get the Mass downloads, will that be a daily or weekly service ? If other believers enjoy the download on a non-commercial basis, is that a fair use ? I suspect your licensing agreement provides that if I take a collection, it belongs to you.

We have a televised Sunday Mass here, and a family member who is too ill to go to church tapes it and watches it later on Sunday. I'll bet see'll prefer your podcast to the current, VHS instant re-pray.

My church is big on "Free Will Donations" which means the more you give, the better person you are. I believe that one can actually buy one's way into heaven on potluck free will donations alone.

The blooper idea would show my humanity (and some laughs)--which might bring more people into the church. Let me think about this.
