Default Re: Samsung: "blu-ray has 5 years left"

I thought for a while that eventually digital distribution will take over but recently I have decided that this is totally not viable in the UK at least due to the bandwidth and download limits.

I'm on one of the "better" ISPs and pay over $45 a month for the net and only have 30GB of download/upload at peak times. That's not even enough for one BR film. I have to constantly keep an eye on how much XBOX Live stuff and PSN stuff I'm downloading. Its gonna take more than 5 years before downloading high quality 1080p films will be a reasoable proposition. Its not likt the limits are rapidly expanding. If anything most ISPs are becoming tighter and tighter.
