Just great, another advertiser-based Internet-distribution video service. And naturally not compatible with any other service and/or PMP.

Here we go...
1) download
2) crack (?)
3) strip advertising/convert format
4) watch
5) share (optional)
6) delete when DVDs are released
7) repeat steps 1-5 with DVDs
8) when pay service starts change 1 to "pay & download".

Meh. As long as my PVR keeps working I'll stick with 1,3,4 & maybe 6.
