NetFlix buys all the DVDs outright. Copyright law says NetFlix can loan/rent those original disc out however and as many times as they want. The royalty fees are included in the purchase price of each DVD forever. Streaming in the other hand is a "whoa buddy" discussion w the studios -- must be negotiated. Then re-negotiated. Then....
It would be really interesting if Sprint could arrange their CDMA access alongside a US "roaming" GSM SIM card that would activate in poor CDMA coverage areas. However, there's a few blocks to a creative idea like that -- execs at AT&T and maybe some egos at Sprint. AT&T could always use the revenue (sarcasm)
It's not a component issue. CDMA access is controlled at the carrier network level ( there are no CDMA SIM cards and no such thing as an "unlocked CDMA phone".

At last, a carrier thinking outside their comfort zone. Nice marketing move.
If the projector mfgs were really smart, they would contract with Apple to include AirPlay in the projectors. After all, my Denon receever at home ALREADY does have airplay built in. Sweet !!!!!
Firefighters, police and paramedics all with 4G cell phones pressed to their ears, downloading Android medical apps that are trojans (to provide "protection") -- or googling "how to" because their training budgets were cut as part of poorly planned government downsizing...Actually, many ambulances do used cellular uplinks (gear in the ambulance) but nobody's been rushing to the speaker podium claiming those were too slow today.Verizon: "Wait, let me grab something out of...
Typical cellular lag is often 150- 300 ms, which is noticable, and I've seen 1300 ms on a couple of tests. BTW, 1300 ms is expressed as "Hey, where the f@@@ did it go? (reload)"
