    It’s not great (physical DVD’s are OK)
    ...but since I’m stuck with DSL I don’t get full HD quality, anyway.(there’s gig speed cable over the end of my driveway, but they won’t run it down to my house)
    DSL? Oh yeah that would make a big deal. And for you why spend the extra money if your equipment won't really deliver what you're paying for anyways.

    I watched the entire investor day conference, start to finish since I got home from work early today. I have to say I am very excited for everything and think it is perfect for my family considering the myriad of content and affordable price. It is evident that there will be a large amount of content, but a few questions are still killing me:

    Will fox IPs get their own “tile” or will they be wrapped into the Disney label? Will fox content be excluded from the service the first year (except for a few exceptions)? And honestly just anymore info on what role all the new fox content will play in the service.

    Overall though, very impressed by everything presented. If I were Netflix, I’d watch out!

    Another thought I had is about organization.

    While it seems it will be very easy to navigate, some of the tiles concern me a bit. For example, Pixar and marvel only have 20 or so movies with a few movies and Star Wars even less so clearly these tiles will be especially easy to navigate. However, the Disney tile is especially concerning. Disney animation or live action alone already have more media than marvel, Pixar, or Star Wars. If you put those 2 together with Disney channel and presumably some fox content on top of that, there will be a what I fear is too much content in the one tile compared to others. I fear this could result in difficult navigation for the tile and I think that maybe Disney’s name tile should be subcategoried into Disney live action, channel, animation etc for consumer ease purposes

    If that makes sense
