Internet video would be the future if pants-on-head retards like the CEO of HBO weren't actively trying to stifle and kill it because it threatens their antiquated and obsolete business model.

Its not just CEO's of companies like HBO. Its the others like Comcast whom are trying to stifle internet innovation with low caps. Trying as hard as they can to kill of competition like Netflix and others, just to keep their cable tv connections alive against the sea of internet streaming that they can't profit from.

Is that happening down there? My caps keep increasing. I think my current plan is 200 or 250 GB, which has been plenty, even with ~95% of my TV/movie watching being Internet-based (mostly Netflix; the other 5% is OTA TV, including House, which I've since stopped following). I exceeded 100 GB only once in the past 10 months, and that was the month I got my new computer and had to redownload all of my Steam games.

Edit: okay, I'll say 95%, not quite 100
