If you are lucky enough to live in an area that offers the new 20/20 Fios plan... amazing, for $65 a month.

Just think about combining this with the new Slingbox and Slingcatcher... you can easily stream HD from location to another over the internet!

Of course, it remains to be seen how fast DIRECTV can stream to us.

I don't know about Cincinnati but up here in Lebanon Cincinnati Bell is supposedly installing FIOS in a few new neighborhoods. They bought Lebanon’s telecommunications company a while back and according to the guy who installed my internet last spring they will eventually do the whole area.

I have the FiOS 15/2 connection and the DoD works very well. I can start watching shows almost immediately with out ever catching up to the dl.

Hopefully it will be the same when we get some HD to watch.

I've been using a 6Mbps AT&T DSL (really about 5Mbps) and if I give a SD download a minute to start up I haven't caught up to the end of the buffer yet.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I'm dying to get this on my FIOS Connection. I have a HTPC At my house and I work in a Data Center during the over night. With this I should be able to watch a DVD from my home network as if I was sitting in my house. Since that is over 700 movies that would be really cool :D
Was with D* for over 10 years then switched to the dark-side a few years ago and haven't looked back. I truly enjoy the 50% savings and uninterrupted service
