I can down-load unlimited material (through Optonline - CT Cablevision) at 1.7 MegaBytes per second (even though they say 30 MBPS - LIARS!!!) to the tune of $1200 a year, and this is sufficient to watch LOST in 720P free of charge - plus all the other HD based material (both for sale and as a free exhibition), which is better than I can see quality wise on HD ABC-TV, through HD Antenna, Cable, or Satellite!

Now if you want to talk about the future . . .
