I agree with Zod and Klark_Kent. It will be hard for downloads to compete with anything if ISP’s start putting caps on downloads. So far, Comcast is the only one doing it but it could be a trend. Personally, I think these ISP’s should be sued. They advertise “unlimited” accounts yet implement caps. They advertise “bandwidth” that you never ever get. I get near what they advertise on mine but never at the rated speed. Comcast probably “oversells” their pipe anyways. That is probably why they are capping bandwidth. The more people they can fit on their “pipe” the more money they make.
Bluray movie sales are probably going to get worse. Box office attendance is low. The movie disc releases are mediocre at best to bad. I looked at the rest of the month releases and it still doesn’t look good. Watching an HD movie that sucks means you are watching a highly detailed movie that still sucks and probably more so since you are able to see more detail. So no help there either. If the movie industry wants to “resurrect” sales, they need to start releasing movies sooner rather than later. For instance, Iron Man, it has been out since 2 May and now we are going into almost mid Sept… Really, it should of been released by now on disc but it doesn’t look like it will to at least the end of this month or early October.
