I somewhat agree with other posters before and the above statement (even thought they will not stick to it). The VoD is a fad and/or buzz phrase of the moment and simply a sneaky way to make us pay for mostly rehashed material over and over again; just like buying mix CDs of material 10 - 30 years old or older. I want live or new 1st run content above all else along with my DVR, otherwise I can do a premium chnl, PPV (also with my DVR) or a DVD rental when I want to see something else in a commercial free, multi-channel audio format.
And VoD vs PPV? why do I need the ability to start the content every second, any second of the day or night, vs just doing every half or top hour like PPV now? I really don't see the huge need or advantage of VoD past being able to say "hey we offer that too just like X, Y or Z does". Especially if this costs me more in fees and hogs bandwidth and/or my DVR HDD space.
Help me out; as of now I could care less if this ever come to fruition.
Get that dish repeaked as the 5 LNB is great in storms. Gotta be huge thunderheads to the southwest to knock my signal out.
i suppose it depends on your definition of a couple of months. my guess is 2 to 3, maybe closer to 3. that would be october/november. i think beta testing, at least, 2 months before would put it close to september.
