No one is the lesser for using this. The reason it exists is because the price point opening. The critique is more from a business perspective. It's just not long term viable. All it will take is for Netflix to start getting new releases and for itunes and other on demand services to drop their price and they are redundant. I give it a five year window tops.
Anyone notice the clamp down on torrents lately?
I thought maybe it was just me, but I went to one I have used before (KA) and just kept getting redirected to some other site that wanted to download all sorts of crap on my computer so I didn't bother.
FWIW I only download episodes of shows that I missed that have already been broadcast, I have never felt the urge to download a movie.
Shaw VOD is pretty useless for watching previously aired shows unless they are on CTV or Shaw.
