    I have a Blockbuster literally across the street from me but I haven't been there in years. Easier just to watch premiums. I don't have a BD player either.

    The minute I do BD will become obsolete and 3D will be the standard. :nono:

    even I bought a BD Network player, panny bd 65, $125 from Amazon, already watched two net flix movies in two days. They were French movies, not easily available on premiums.

    Just a quick note about the problem with these numbers... you are looking at primetime numbers. There are times other than 8 to 11 PM. For example, this article lists PTI (Pardon the Interuption) and Around the Horn numbers for ESPN... http://sportsbusinessdigest.com/pardon-the-interruption-but-pti-surpassed-sportscenter/ At the 5 PM Eastern timeslot, these shows had between 750k and 1 million viewers kicked most of these network's primetime numbers.

    You might find Disney and Nickelodeon have huge numbers from 9 AM to 5 PM. when moms across the country are using the TV babysitter. Fox Soccer may have millions on Saturdays from fall to spring when the European leagues are playing.

    Not only that, but these shows are watched by a fairly narrow demographic groups.

    Thats where the earlier Sixto poll was interesting... what networks do we want to watch, regardless of when.

    Happy with the numerous HD additions in Q2, but would like to see HLN HD. Sometimes check it after work just to get a quick update of whats in the news that day and hate watching SD.

    Anyone look at the calendar recently? Holiday weekend for most of the country. Even Satelliteracer gets to enjoy an extended holiday weekend.

    Then I gotta buy a 3D TV. Too expensive. Once they come down to where I can afford them 4D will be the standard. :nono:

    I bet we'll get a new list this month. They need to heat up the war with E* again, I loved how intense it was a few months back.

    With a PS3 you good for a while, you can play your BD movies stream Netflix or HULU and once you get a 3Dtv you can play them also.

    That's because it's not a PS3... ;)

    Seriously though, get a BD player. You won't regret it...

    NOW...
