I think the "20 meg connections by now if Hollywood had decided on digital instead of the stopgap that is Blu-ray" was more stupid.
Yes I read the last sentence. Did you? "At least you're open to the possibility that they haven't actually been improving anything at all" [cut and paste]. If they are "no longer rolling it out", they must have started at some point and that would constitute improvement.
You bring up Verizon fiber rollout and you want to throw out some sarcasm about not improving anything at all. Looks like we all need a good start.
The spinning is fast enough for top quality audio and video, better than digital. Some blu-rays are encoded with various formats - MPEG-4 AVC, VC-1, MPEG-2. Not repurchasing digital movies? Really? Original iTunes SD downloads do not need repurchasing for HD? Well, BD player still play DVD's.   Haven't notice? Maybe AppleInsider and customers really don't care and just want to complain about it? Maybe Verizon stopped their fiber rollout due to cost or just some conspiracy.
Hilarious or delusional? Blu-ray is only stopgap because you don't like it. Blu-ray is digital and uses the same codec as digital, so who is really stagnating? Why isn't digital a stopgap until the next thing that comes along that requires us to re-buy our movies?   AT&T and Verizon have been spending billions building out and increasing bandwidth. Cheaper? Nothing is cheaper. They are answerable to shareholders.
Ads are not effective? Lots of companies including Apple pay for these ads. I think these know what they are doing.
What message would that be? To allow customers to get and app and cut the cord?
I do. Even though the iPhone photos are much more convenient, I still prefer the quality of the SLR. And I have to get the photos onto iPhoto on my computer anyway.   And website work well because the iPad/iPhone runs of of storage space after a while.
They are building out more. AT&T has announced it is investing billions on their networks. Verizon has spent billions in their fiber deployment so far. It just isn't happening as fast and as inexpensive as we would like.
Why stop there at just one channel? Wouldn't true free market be the ability to pay for just the show I want to watch? If I just want Sopranos, why should I pay for the rest of the HBO shows that I do not watch?   And why would there be a max cost? Free market means free to charge the amount to make a profit, don't buy it if you do not like the price or product. The studio will charge whatever they need to make a profit.
