Does anyone predict any problems with your downloads of the Olympics with your VOD from DirectV or Dish. The reason I bring it up is that I know a lot of the broadband companies are doing (Metered Broadband) this is where they are capping your download speed and amount for the month which some call caps.
I have DSL with Qwest from Tucson, Az and do not predict problems with them. Some of the Olympics events can be set to download through VOD on NBC.
Of course the major problem may come from the VOD for DirectV. They still have not got it right yet, and I still have problems with them sometimes. ost of the time I have the VOD cable to the receive unplugged to avoid problems with downloads to the HD DVR.
