If you have a 5G monthly limit on your internet that'll be less than a HD movie so you are going to have to pay extra to your IP for going over your limit which means you'll have to get a package with higher limits.
How much are you willing to pay for HD downloads?
$4.99 for a 720p movie with lossy audio & $150 a month to your IP for enough bandwidth to download several movies a month?
Blu-Ray movies don't look so expensive now do they!
Everything is starting to look expensive now!!! Gas is predicted to reach $7.00 a gallon by December 31 st!!! I've curtailed my desire for that tube CD player - and bought one of my last pieces of tech for a while (a 42 inch 1080p Phillips - just like the one I bought for my son - the last piece will be a Xonar HDAV 1.3 soundcard for my HTPC). This whole thing is getting crazy! BD's have to come down in price...period. The economy is not helping. I still buy BD's, but no more than 2 at a time. The PQ and AQ is superior to anything out there, and I will still buy must haves - but movies that I'm questionable about - I've been waiting until the movie shows up on my HD cable channels to view it first. If I really like it - I buy it, if not - I pass. By the way I use Mediacom and I believe that they are throttling customers internet service also (mine goes at blinding speed while people who I know do a lot of downloading - their speeds crawl like dial-up!!!
