It kinda breaks the experience when you're waiting around for video to download and/or upload.
Do any of the Canadian providers actually offer a 1080p service? I know rogers HD isn't, it's a 720p stream.

The only thing that has the bandwidth would be fibre optic TV for 1080p. The kicker with that is if you're too far from the hop you get either have decent internet speeds and 1-2 TVs for HD or you really have to choose between one or the other (my parents have that issue)

Looks cool, but it is a little concerning when they dont even have a machine to show us yet. How this works in theory sounds great but let's see it in action.

I can tell you right now what it will look like; a black box with a PS4 logo on it.
