    I don't know about this. Streaming HD movies to my sofa? Really? Might as well go to the cinema then.
    And as long as I'm not allowed to actually download and PERMANENTLY own a movie the whole part of the market is non-existent for me.

    So now your TV is slowly turning into a small PC in a way.
    I remember good ol' days when TVs just displayed things.

    My download speed needs to be quicker to be able to stream hd content, but films on demand is the future. Why rent a dvd when you can pick from an online library of thousands of films and just sit on the sofa and watch. Great stuff !!

    At least erratum1 saw the purpose on VOD, not to have to go outside to browse for films and the possibility that the local "blockbuster" doesn't have said film.

    I want my Pr0n!

    On a serious matter im sick of families..and stuff getting changed because of family branding.
    People need to stop acting so seriously. As if abit of C**k or P***sy will damage a kids mind.

    EVERYBODY uses it so why do we still have double standards?

    Anfield, could you please define "fake hd"? Last time I checked, HD meant High Definition, which is exactly what Youtube got, 1920x1080.
    You should also consider moving to Sweden if you want a fast connection. We got Gbit-Internet-connection in some areas :O

    oh how I dont like walmart, you know a studied showed that if all the Walmarts in the US closed in under a year our economy would go up 33% becuase thats how many business it squeezed out ~_~

    I like Walmart when it was owned by its creator, he stated he would always buy american first and once he died and his family took over it became chinamart ~_~ oh well....

    Yes they do. Did you read the article you linked to, or just the headline?

    Wal-Mart sold Asda to Corinth Services, but seing as Wal-Mart OWNS Corinth Services, it still owns Asda. It was just an accounting and corporate structure change, not a change of ownership.

    ? Here I'm lucky if 480 is offered (as HD *snicker*), most content is 320.

    Besides, I've tried the German "Maxdome" service that CLAIMS to deliver on-demand-HD over a 2000-DSL.
    The video experience is like this: Buffering, more buffering, some more buffering, movie start, grind to stuttering halt buffering. After half an hour I gave up.
    I get sent blurays thru the mail now, and mail them back...

    The average bandwith of a BluRay in the mail is not to be underestimated* :D

    *and yes, thats a misquote.
