I too hope Hughesnet won't make the mistakes that Viasat has made this year. I would love to tell Viasat what they can do with Exede and their low set data plans
With respect to movies via snail mail vs. the internet, I have no problem with snail mail. Unfortunately, more and more video content is via internet only...and DVD's are not being created.
Streaming video content is the way of the future. Of course, Exede's data plans are set to 2001 levels
