The Apple duo is the worst, since you have to buy the movies, but that is likely going to change in a week or two.
The Unbox stuff is pretty crappy quality, but oh so convenient. A few weeks ago I rented a movie while at a basketball game on my iPhone via amazon.com and had the movie waiting for me on my Tivo when I got home. The experience was great, but the quality sucked.
The Xbox system is actually getting better. The quality is by far the best, but downloads can take a while. It has improved since my first try, however, which took 5 days to download!The biggest problem, however, is selection. Unless there is a huge library of new releases, it won’t be useful to me.
- Netflix, the DVD-by-mail company with more than 7 million customers, has a new strategy that may one day make those red envelopes obsolete.
