Default Blu ray recorder?

Where the hell are the Canadian Blu ray recording vendors at? Europe has those already. Heck i am darn tempted to buy the Cable topbox from Sky in the UK. This one has a blu ray recorder and can burn dual 25 GB plates. Only req is that u have HD Tv signal. Can give link to said topbox if desired.. but really... how come we always LAGS behind Europe and asia? Isnt North america a superpower?
This makes us look like we are some backwater african country with no electricity!

HDD space is considerably cheaper than BD. Personally if you are trying to build a TV library I would just buy a capture card and a ton of HDD's.
