Why would people want to shell out the $$$ for XStream HD when they could pay their cable co/satco $20-$30 for the movie?

XStreamHD is a horrible business model and DOA, IMO.

Because you only get the QUALITY for XStreamHD. Cable cant deliver 1080p with the full master audio in 7.1.

$30 for a movie that is still in theaters is CHEAP. I don't know if you have been to the movies in awhile, but when I bring my family of 4 to the movies it is over $75 for all of us.

Agreed. its laughable. I just hope no one actually sent them any money.

DTS MA and TRUEHD are great, don't get me wrong, but they aren't worth $25 more per movie. If I want to see a movie in the theater I go see it and pay extra if not I wait and watch at home (and likely enjoy it more).

I'd expect to be able to buy a BD in 7.1 for $20-$30. Granted, not as quickly.

I suspect XStream is too niche to make it.

Won't that be CES number 3 (or is it 4?) for them? Wonder if they will actually have a product available for sale at that point...

For their receivers to stay at the high end level, like they say they are, should include HDMI 1.4 and usb 3.0 ports added if they do not have them already.

Hi Vurbano,

Great question. XStreamHD can provide FullHD (1080p) movies, equivalent to Blu-ray quality without the hassles of waiting in line, lengthy internet downloads or mail order services.

Granted if quality does not matter to you, then XStreamHD is not for you. It is a different model than cable or satellite PPV or On-Demand that cannot deliver our level of quality.

Keep the questions coming!
