133. You. Are. Wrong. Seriously wrong. Simply put:
Edited on Tue Sep-20-11 10:29 AM by nomb
Most people, right now, could not stream a movie at any speed. Most of those who could, can not even consider streaming at HD, let alone blu-ray quality.

And let's just say that those of us that could stream, tried. The infrastructure is not there.


And if the providers win in the end and get to charge by usage or destination? Who here would pay an internet bill that increased with usage? And then switch their viewing habits to that medium of pay for show + pay for flow?

2-3 years? Not a chance in hell.
