    I like my D* and all but I'm not sure I would consider myself a "loyal follower". :D

    I still have a Blockbuster membership and occasionally rent (though I more often buy previously view titles) movies there. I buy more DVDs than I rent, and I rent more DVDs than Pay per Views. Since I have a DVR for each of my televisions, I could rent a PPV and record it and keep it as long as I'd like. My opinion is that DVDs are better than hard drive files. I don't think this will stamp out big chains like Blockbuster and Hollywood Video.

    I agree, you can take DVD in the car or loan it to a friend.

    Rupert can't even get CCSN Philly on satellite. His DVR plans are uninspiring.

    Walmart succeeds w/ brick & mortar, but lags Amazon in the online world, and correctly put failed gaining marketshare with its online rental service and handed its customers to Netflix.

    Technically that is not Rupert fault because CCSN has the Philly Market locked down so tight that it would take a miracle for CCSN Philly to come to Directv or Dish Network. Comcrap absolutely DOES NOT WANT CSN Philly to come to Satellite.

    Really shouldnt it be Wal-mart vs Tivo fight.

    Because Tivo and Netflix had another late last year they were working on letting the next gen download movies from netflix through broadband connection. and have it be a video on demand type of service.
