Re: And that data usage...

An HD movie shown at 1GB.

HD Movie at 1GB?! With what codec and compression settings?
Try 4 (for decent 720p). 2-3 conservatively speaking and compressed to hell with low-quality AAC audio.

Yea that's is part of my point... It's probably going to use at least 2GB for the movie, and probably have to be priced less than that to compete with the Kiosks...

I'd have to guess they are going to want to charge that bandwidth against you to try to push you into a higher data tier... Less tech savvy people might not be able to add up how much it's really going to cost them to use the service.

No kidding. A standard single layer DVD is 4.7GB, and that's 480p. If an HD movie could have fit in 1GB, Blu-ray would have never been needed.

No kidding??! 1GB for a 720p HD movie would be *awful* never mind 1080p. No thanks.
