I hate to say it out loud... But that's common knowledge, Rogers and CTV rip off their customers all the time. Including the Evil Emperor Bell. The monopoly they have on television saddens me.

I really like the idea, and not wanting to pay 240$ to get HD in my bedroom this is a good alternative to me! Thanks for the posting!

8.99$/month isnt so bad, and I have 200GB cap which I use probably only 40GB...which leaves alot for Netflix!

Yeah fine here now too. Earlier I could not get any titles, although Speedtest and everything else seemed fine.

I just noticed a bunch of shows added, now Mythbusters Season 2,3,4 and 5, some Combat shows (Future Weapons, Combat Zone, Weaponology), MI-5, and others. Good start for the first week!

Yup loving netflix. Watching a lot of movies now and it was great when my cousins came over because there is a lot of stuff for children. Not bad just wished it had more titles but in time they will come. I figure even if I just watch 1 movie a month it is worth it because it costs just as much to rent from Rogers for just 1 movie where netflix I get unlimited.

I agree. Just have to watch a couple of movies to make it worth it.

However, if they don't update the content quick enough I might just run out of stuff I want to watch.

Has anyone checked to see how much bandwidth is used while streaming HD content? I've heard it is CONSIDERABLY less than the advertised 2GB/hour, which makes me question the quality of the content. Do they have Dolby 5.1 for their content? It's also understandable that it is less than the advertised 2GB since people would deinfately complain if it was more than that so they gave themselves some leg room. I haven't tested it myself so I'm not sure if what I heard is true. How does the HD stack up to bluray?
