If you think about it, we already have the equipment needed for this. How many of us have a fast internet connection (Comcast 12 G/s)? How many of us have a system with a large (250 GB or larger) drive. Why can't VOD, or DOD make use of my other networked equipment? Why do I have to pay more for equipment I don't need? Yes, I agree, NetFlix stinks when it comes to getting Blu~Ray disks. The moment the show comes out it has a VeryLongWait. What is up with that? Does NetFlix only get one copy for rental? Why can't they get 10 times the copies of Blu~Ray disks? If Verizon FiOS knows what they are doing, it will replace all formats. Fiber to the house, there will be no need for anything else! But that is off subject.
