Well, I guess I can see the benefit for some, but I doubt I'd ever use it.
Between the discs in the mail, my 3 DVR's and my collection of over 800 DVD's I'd never watch a sub-DVD quality movie. And any TV show I'm interested in I already record.
As for kids (I have a 3 and 5 year old), they have their own DVR loaded with shows, plus we have VOD (free) and every Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks movie ever made on DVD. We're good there.
Plus, not only are my kids not allowed in the theater without me (they have their own TV in the game room), but sub-DVD quality is even worse when viewed on a 126" screen.
I guess if I had it hooked up in the living room instead of the theater, didn't have a DVR, watched more movies than my mail package allowed, didn't have a lot of DVD's, didn't care about sound quality and didn't have VOD, this would be a great feature for me too.
