True the picture and sound are gorgeous... But the hassle isn't.

Downloading 1080p/720p content is good enough (for me at least).

I'm a big fan of Blu rays. The restorations are remarkable on some Blu-Rays that are exclusive to them. And of course, the sound is brilliant and there is no equal.

But I'm with you- the loading is God awful and with the exception of Disney, you have to watch a half dozen commercials so I have to skip skip skip skip. It sucks.

TWC? Could this be the box that will replace the cable boxes for TWC or could this be suped up with a dvr and new TWC clients can buy this Apple TV and run the TWC app and use the included dvr and just not need the TWC cable box?
TWC said it was coming in the fall

Steve's not. Steve was great. It's time to move on.

"Set top box with coomunication function" sounds a lot like FaceTime TV. Where would they put the camera though?
