    I live in the middle of nowhere with a 2 meg connection and my content sits between the 2 bar and and 3 bar section for quality (3 is as high standard def goes) watched an episode of south park today and it was streaming the hd version no problem, even YouTube can't stream hd stuff that quickly.

    Sounds promising! I have a 4 meg connection so should hopefully be able to stream hd on that quite well. I can stream it on Apple TV but have to give it a good 15 mins before I start.

    Tried this today. It's not bad for say watching on an iPad but it's a damn shame that HD is based on your connection and not choice. On Apple TV it will let me download an HD film and it just needs to buffer for say 15 mins before it will play. On this it just says, your connection is not good enough to play HD from the off so you can't have it. Shame.

    I'm happy that this is available as a lower quality (presumably) alternative to renting BDs from the likes of LoveFilm - but I would hate to see the high quality rental market go away completely.

    I've been subscribed now for a couple of weeks almost (since it came to the UK) and I think I'll remain subscribed for a month or 2 longer to see how it develops.

    There's loads of things that I've never seen before but it'd be nice to get some more up to date films on there. I've just watched The Evil Dead again for the first time in 30 years - it's not aged well. I can remember be scared sh*tless as a young teenager the first time I saw it but the special effects are a bit dated to say the least.

    Anyway, for £5.99 a month, I'll give it a go.
