Another reminder to content providers that they MUST make their content available in a form that meets the demands of consumers and takes advantage of the technical innovations that are available to their customers. They cannot simply bury their head in the sand, or else they are going to suffer the same incredible growing pains that the music labels went through.

Here's a product that may put a scare into studio heads.Cinemacube

Taiwan-based Zinnet today unveiled the brite-View CinemaCube, a high-definition multi-media player and ********** downloader. That means it just got easier for people to grab pirated films from the Internet and watch them on their TV.

The device plugs directly into a user's TV and uses any USB storage device (from thumb drives to external hard drives) to store data. On the surface, that means you could watch your home movies or view photos.

The CinemaCube is also comes with a built-in ********** client, meaning users can access the online file sharing service. It's also networkable, letting users can grab files (ranging from music to video to photos) from a remote PC to view on their television.

The device, which supports HD content up to 720p and comes with an HDMI port, is on sale now for $89.99.

Previously, people who wanted to watch a pirated movie on their TV would typically have to burn a DVD copy of the download before they could watch it on the couch. The CinemaCube expedites the process - somewhat.

Isn't the Popcorn Hour able to do the same thing if you add a hard disc inside it?

I currently just use my PCH with files ripped from purchased optical media or captured broadcasts. It is frustrating when the ******rents have stuff not available elsewhere.
