how are they gonna stop the hackers from hacking the satellite, they can't star wars the phantom menace was online that day ....
I'm betting the idea is to sell the cinemas new equipment that will use a unique signing algorithm so that the downloaded files can only be decrypted by systems with specific certificates.
It still doesn't plug the analog hole. For that, they'll probably want to build infrared elements into the projector - and raise ticket prices to cover the cost. The infrared flashes will work with your MPAA-approved video cameras (which you'll have to pay more for, since Apple undoubtedly has a patent on this obvious BS) such that recording is disabled when they detect the flashes. People will try to unlock the cameras and replace the firmware, but it will be a DMCA violation.
So, people will then use old (i.e. todays) cameras and/or simple filters to make the recordings instead, completely bypassing the problem. End result: Piracy unaffected, while legal viewers pay more money for everything in order to prop up a greedy industry.
Me? Cynical? Never.
