Only in the sense that the catalog of available content is different. The data served for a title held in common with the US is precisely the same and it's served in exactly the same fashion, no...

No, it isn't. Forcing the ISPs to increase their port capacity to accommodate whatever download demand their customers choose to place on it is not the point. Also, you definitely can't force...

The additional memory is only used to contain code for channels. I wouldn't add it until it complained that it needed it; the internal memory should be fine for the great majority of users.

Netflix has four 2160p video encodes for every one of its tiny selection of "Ultra HD 4K" titles (much tinier outside of the US), at 8000-, 10000-, 12000- and 15600 Kbps. With 192 Kbps DD+ 5.1 sound...

Only if someone can prove that there's throttling going on. ISPs don't have to pay for ports large enough to accomodate streaming service traffic and they didn't.

Hopefully it won't make the Netflix deals illegal because I'm pretty sure that it will become much harder for customers to get higher bit rate video without private paths into the ISP's WANs.

Nice--could be a reason to use the app (I prefer the website's presentation of gear and inventory, which is identical to the game's).

Not to me. I can see SOE instantly, regardless of the level of the motion.




Can it be that we're less sensitive to what you're referring to as "judder" in 24p projection? Just as you seem...

I believe that the minimum bit rate of Amazon 1080p video is a ridiculous 10 Mbps (more bits is always good but it unnecessarily decreases the percentage of their customer base who can get 1080p). ...

I'm doing the same from my TiVo Roamio. My P60 upscales both 720p and 1080i beautifully; 480 res cable is what it is and doesn't look any worse on the P60 than it did on my old 1080p TV. (I don't...

I wouldn't. Not a big fan of that soap opera look and I hear that 48p results in that. Thankfully it seems that only a few mavericks are going that way.
