Technology is fast paced. We will see good quality broadband video soon (within a coupole years at most). Almost every broadcasting company is implimenting it so it only a matter of time. My only worry is that they will start charging for it. If I want to watch the first season of "The Office" why would NBC give it to me for free when they can make me buy a DVD.
