maybe someone should introduce them to the torrent sites
Translation into plain English for their quote.
"We don't want to encourage piracy more that what is already going on in the world now".
Actually, a translation into plain English for their quote would be:
"There isn't enough bandwidth to supply movies to every movie watching household in America, let alone the world, via the Internet at SD resolution/bitrate, let alone HD resolution/bitrate."
Also, downloading a single DVD-DL worth of content from a torrent site takes anywhere from 4 hours to a week. When I want to watch a movie, I want to do it then or, at the very most, within the hour it takes me to drive from my house to the nearest video retailer.
P2P has no place in the delivery of LEGAL copyrighted materials. It is too easy to get a torrent from someone who purchased the torrent and pirate it.

Netflix works just fine at friends house he has a 6 or 10 mbit downstream cable connection which I know isnt fast. I have a 1.5 which I split with roomate so its fastest we have for now. Over friends Netflix buffers in under 20 seconds and full screen quality is decent. Havent tried netflix here since no longer on windows.
Mostly see above, but Netflix doesn't have near the quality video that Blu-ray has. Netflix =/= HD.
This thread is seriously bordering on the advocation of piracy.
