They use a different codec then over the air so it doesn't need 19.2
mbps for the similar quality (not that many shows even use that much
bandwith). The problem I find is that next to none of the already
limited selection is actually HD... =( I think I have seen maybe
2-3 out of 30-40 movies watched.
