Sorry, I meant to answer this.

At it's best it's DVD quality, at last to an untrained eye. With limited bandwidth, it can get a little blocky, but is 
still very watchable. I haven't tried their "HD", since I'm watching it via PlayON, which doesn't do that, so I can't say 
if it's worth it.

My brother watches it with a Samsung Blu-Ray player and says it's "as good as cable", but he is not very critical (he has 
a hard time seeing the difference between VHS and DVD).
