Yeah, I wonder how much BW it would take just to keep in sync with every video added to Netflix. I'm assuming it would also have to download a copy of every video in every format, which I'm guessing would make for a lot of downloading.
I think they could schedule it to run between 1am and 6am.
Im not sure exactly how it works but i imagine three streams of 200mb, 700mb and 1200mb for each show x 10 shows per day is only 21 gigabytes.
Even 30 gigabytes a day would still be good i guess. 2 megabytes a second of pre-caching between 1am and 6am. Even if it was spread out through the day it wouldnt be too bad.
