You can have it installed or install it yourself.Scott does one have to install the dish or will XTREAMHD install the dish??
$7 to rent a movie that I can get from Blockbuster for $4.99, and not have to pay for a monthly fee, plus several hundred dollars up-front? And is the picture quality and sound going to be better than a blu-ray? Really?From memory the movies to rent were $6.99 but that's for a full 1080p movie in the highest quality plus the lossless audio.
XStreamHD is not going to be for everyone but if you want the best quality audio and video in your house then this is a product for you. As I said before I was impressed with what I saw.
According to their site they will be doing cable--broadcast type programs as VOD in others words you download a show like house and watch it when you want.The lnb looked like an FSS lnb that Dish Network used on their SuperDishes. Would be nice if all we needed was an 18 inch dish like what was used back in the early days of Dish and Direct as those dishes can be had for real cheap.
They could stream locals over their network couldn't they? Does this service offer all the channels you can get with satellite and cable or just movies and games? I think a service like this would be great for those wanting to do gaming where there is no cable or broadband service available.
One thing Vudu lacks is a HR audio to go with their HDX. Sure the newer setups on vudu offer DD+, but what xstream is offering is a true lossless audio to go with the 1080p picture. I still think xstream is out of line in the pricing arena though.i can get true hd now with my vudu app on my new vizio sv422xvt no extra eqipment needed netflix and amozon only offer 720p vudu offers three choices 1080p 720p 480p unbelievale picture jay cee ps most movies are 3.99 480p 4.99 720p 5.99 1080p
