First of all, I'm not suggesting that "internet streaming" is a solution. The internet is not - yet - able to provide consistent high-bandwidth.

So when all the homes have fiber, this will be a viable method.
Before we have that type of bandwidth, it's too limited to replace the current systems providing entertainment.

And now: What the hell does this have to do with a $3 charge for MRV? :confused:

Might I suggest this forum would be a better place for your topic: http://www.iptvconnection.com/

There is lots of bandwidth available now when people are at work and sleeping. The whole point of what I described - time-shift the downloads.

As others have said, MRV charge because they can. That's what near-monopoly does. Internet breaks distribution monopoly. With real competition we wouldn't have charges like MRV and HD.

This sounds very strange, as far as I knew they were not sending out H20s anymore to anyone.


The last time I asked they said they always try to send out the same model of DVR being returned because it reduces installation issues.

HR/H20's are being taken out of circulation
My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.
