Adobe is leading the charge with Adobe Creative Cloud. Creative Cloud is an ongoing membership that lets you download and install all of the Adobe Creative Suite 6 software, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop Extended, After Effects, Audition, SpeedGrade, Prelude, Illustrator, and Flash Professional. You also get other creative software like Lightroom, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, and services like Adobe Story Plus for scriptwriting, production scheduling, and reporting.
