I was wondering if once DirecTV launches VOD will they show the movies in Mpeg 4 HD Anamorphic Widescreen or regular HD Anamorphic Widescreen? Also will the new release movies on VOD be the same day that they are out in the video stores? Also what type of Dolby would they use, 5.1 or 7.1 Surround Sound? Thanks, Craig.

I would not expect much from DirecTV's HD choices. Even the HD they use now is a cut back version.
