Arghhh - no more Blu Ray rentals as our last video store is closing.
I finally have been dragged reluctantly into the streaming universe by signing up for Netflix - first month free. Of course this required diving in behind my system to reconnect cables to enable proper surround sound to make its way through to the speakers. What a PITA.
Our first movie showed in 720 instead of 1080 - disappointing. Furthermore, there was one significant stoppage due to buffering or net problems I guess.
I also tried Shaw 'Video on Demand' for another movie that curiously was not available on Netflix. This time it was in 1080 but had significant lip sync issues throughout.
So, IMO, I've regressed in overall quality as I suspected that I would. Convenience over quality strikes again...
