Having a downloaded copy on a DVR won't give people that feeling of ownership. When someone spends their money on a movie, wouldn't you think that they would much rather prefer having something physical to show for it, as opposed to 4gb on their hard drive.

Movies will go the way of the ipod eventually, but this is not that solution.
Im really certain, actually Ill GUARANTEE you that downloads will never catch on when it comes to ownership. Have you noticed all the 'streaming' services getting announced lately? it seems the trend is to skip downloads all together.
Meaning digital dilivery wont take off imo until we have some final subscription plan to watch every single movie in high def. That might take awhile.

I know with our HD PVR we can hook up an externl USB hdd to it and then take the movie from the portable drive and rip it to disk. So you will still have a physical copy of it if you truly want one.

I think this COULD impact BD if it comes to pass before BD catches on in sufficient numbers, but I think the window Warner was talking about just got smaller now.

Since this is dish network specific, I don't see it even making a debt in BDs progression. The young adult generation likes simplicity. When they make an ipod type device, with a minimum of 1 terabyte of space to store a decent collection of 1080p movies, BD and physical media will be in trouble. I'd love to own something like that, with an itunes type program to manage your movies, and a good selection to choose from, all in 1080p. It wouldn't hurt to make it look fancy and cutting edge like the ipod. This generation loves that

This goes back to what I have been saying for months. Without additional bandwidth for broadband connections HD movie downloads are going to be extremely slow to take off with the public. The mass public is not going to wait hours at a time for an HD show to download to their PC, HDTV, or other device. Right now the broadband speeds are lagging behind the available resolution and that is what is going to continue to hurt HD downloads until the problem is solved.

But HD streaming via the Satellite is here today and with MPEG-4 compression, looks damned good (even at 1080i), from where I sit! My only problem is that DTV has not enabled the USB ports yet!

As for HD VOD just select what you want to watch and go to bed. The next day it is there! It still beats the "Snail mail," with Netflix!
