what bandwidth? it would be treated as VOD. It wouldnt use much of anything.

Chances are they would just record the show once and share it among people who wanted to watch it and have most likely a 3 week viewing time for that item. I don't see them storing TV shows and movies for ever.
I think he was speaking about the potential bandwidth required by the cable co to deliver hundreds of thousands+ of different programming over their lines simultaneously. People aren't all watching the same thing at the same time and the impact would be greater than VOD since there would be a hell of a lot more people using it than VOD.

And in reference to people storing shows and movies forever - you must not know people with TiVos... Personally I had Birds of Prey on my TiVo until it came out on DVD and I think that was about 5 or 6 years ago?
