I can see this being valuable in select circumstances..

For instance, you have a family of 4 and the cost of going to the theaters would be about $10 per person + snacks or a group of friends who'd rather stay in and watch it all pitch in rather than going to the theater.

I don't really know what to make of this...

Or just watch a move that's been out for 6 months for $6. Or redbox a blu-ray for $1.50 + driving time.

Depends. If you have a nice home theater, I could see this as an alternative. If you don't, it's a rather high-priced movie ticket.

..not to mention I wonder if this is in HD (not over-compressed) with full 7.1 surround and 3D on certain movies. I kinda doubt it, though.

DirecTV super-compresses their HD feed. Their $5 VOD HD rentals aren't even worth it from how crappy it looks with any minimal moving scene.

the push / download VOD is 1080P much better then comcast VOD.

It can be 2160p, but if they compress the crap out of it and then uncompress it, it will still be 2160p of crap.

A) Starz movies are NOT in HD.

B) Ocne the Starz deal runs out you can kiss those new movies from them good-bye.

There will be others. Starz is not the only stream on Netflix. But I am not hear to try to sell Netflix to YOU.

Anyway back on topic.

You should see U-verse -- that is super-compression. AT&T makes DirecTV look like Bluray.
