Today I got to interview the CEO of XStreamHD George Gonzalez at CES. George gave us a look at the upcoming service and from what I saw I was excited as it appears the service is almost ready for launch. In fact in this video George shares with us the launch date of the new service.

Now if your interested early next week tune into the SatelliteGuys Podcast as George sat down with me again for more of a one on one conversation and in it he tells SatelliteGuys members how they can get their hands on the new service first.

Nice service, but way way too expensive for me!

I have some questions. How much will the movies cost, will they have TV shows, will there be a monthly fee? I am looking at this to maybe replace my Directv service. I watch mostly network TV, a little usa, tnt, tbs, and syfy. I buy a lot of blu-rays and have netflix for movies. What do you think Scott?

Am I the only one wondering why they're showing "Good Luck Chuck" on a "Family Room" TV?

This is the 3rd time the boy cried wolf. WHat I didnt hear TrueHD only DTS-MA HD? How does a company exist for 3 years without selling anything? I smell a rat and his name is Charlie.

I think you are right. X stream uses a VIP satellite that has coverage over the entire U.S. and has very similar technology to what DISH /Echostar has now. Then the outrageous price to buy a set and install your self, sounds just like DISH 13 -14 years ago. I won't be buying this service since they will be charging a monthly fee and then you have to pay to watch the movies too.

What banks looks at that business plan and gives a loan? Pay for the equipment, pay for the service every month and pay for the movies? Has anyone got any real numbers on what this would cost? Charlie must be funding the rope for these guys to hang themselves with so he can snatch it up cheap?

I wonder if there could be a way to integrate this with Dish. It makes a great companion to the TV services, but would be better paired with Dish to replace their current VOD. Add in Indemand stuff such as howard TV, this service would be way cool! Make it like a USSB / Directv paring from the early days. Then add in a widget on VIP boxes and you could stream 80 Mbit streams to any box in your home. There is alot of potential with dish as you could potentially with line of site make an xstreamHD dish that gets thier sat w/ both eastern and western arch. My only issue is I have 4 + dish's in my back yard, (C / KU / D* / E*) What's another one. I really would like to consolidate my Eastern arch dish with Xstream HD on one dish. If they could get it to work with Dish Comm, you don't even have to run Ethernet then.

I hope that the Ethernet ports are Gigabit :)
