1) It will be wildly overpriced relative to its rivals
2) It will be slower and attached as an add-on to already crappy HDD based DVR's that are slow, buggy, and break constantly yet I have to pay to fix/replace them
3) There will be a bandwidth and viewer cap per show,
4) It will have commercials added in while I browse to subsidize revenue
5) The content will be ancient and I won't actually want to see it
6) They will adapt an iTunes/Pay-Per-View model on content that is free on other providers instead of an all-you-can-stream model, PLUS they will play the cutsie auto-delete game on content I paid for after a certain time, a-la Pay-Per-View.
7) It will be a raving pain in the ass to find anything as the remote will most certainly lack a qwerty input because YOU ARE CHEAP
8) Half of the content will be Programming in A Foreign language, Dogmatic religion channels, and there will be a curious absence of indy, YouTube and non-commercial studio content.
9) I will be restricted on the number of episodes I can 'save' or view at one time.
10) I'm more likely to get a high Def video faster from a torrent source than I am a directTV service
11) You will force me to purchase crap channels/content/HD services I don't want to access this service
12) The content that is available won't be the complete catalog of a series. I will be the last 5 episodes plus ancient episodes a la Hulu.
13) You will disable fast-forward through commercials in downloaded content to boost your revenue streams.
DirectTV: I'd rather have a pineapple forcibly shoved up my ass and spun around at 4000 RPM's than have your filth clogging the one last refuge of free speech and innovation in the world. Your installation franchisees are awful. Your internet service sucks. You hold content providers hostage. Your DVR's are crap. I really hope Netflix comes and knocks you on your ass...
