    There's a difference when it is a couple of people vs the main way to get movies.

    Then there is the issue of waiting to get it, space to keep it, if you want a collection getting more space to keep it etc etc.

    True, bandwidth may be an issue that that point.

    The wait doesn't seem to be long. Apple says you can start watching in 30 seconds. Space could be an issue, but you can get massive hard drives nowadays. And for rentals, you can just delete them afterwards.

    I don't know what broadband is like in the States but it is beyond dreadful down here.

    It's not nearly as good here as it is in other places around the world. But I don't know how US broadband compares to AUS broadband. High end DSL is 6Mbps and cable is higher, in theory if not reality.

    They won't open up the broadband channels down here so we are restricted.

    Wal Mart has joined the "kicking out HD-DVD and embracing Blu Ray" phenomenon.

    I wonder how HD DVD will survive all of this.

    Yeah, HD-DVD is basically done. They'll probably move to sell off what they have and then throw in the towel.

    That said, I'm still not buying a blu-ray
