Have you not heard of bandwidth caps?
Until internet speeds get fast enough for quick downloads at a cheap price without caps, HD downloads doesn't have a chance.
I'm not paying $15 for a compressed HD download with lossy audio that's full of DRM, takes 8 hours to download & pretty much wipes out my monthly download cap.
I'll stick with my 1080p Blu-Rays with lossless audio that I can play anywhere I want as many times as I want.
