  • HD or just HiRes?

    Are they really HD or just high resolution? What's the bitrate?

  • RE: Free NBC television shows in HD

    I tried downloading the Hero episode then the download time came up to be more than 10 hours. 10 hours for a tv show? No thanks.

    • It's the 21st Century, sport...

      upgrade that dial-up.

      It took me about 30 minutes to download the HD and
      standard episodes of Hero (and last night's Countdown, as
      well). If your ISP is 1/20th the speed of mine, get a new ISP.
      Yours has serious issues.

  • And this will die....

    because of Comcast and them putting the insane 250GB cap on peoples lines. Once more broadband companies start putting data transfer caps on peoples lines - these options wont look as appealing.

  • iTunes? Who needs iTunes for Windows?

    I'm glad iTunes is not in my computer.
