There could be a day should physical media go away for home video viewing that you could be clamoring for a company like K to exist. They are the only ones now migrating into digital distribution...

It (in the long run with more studio support) negates the need to maintain those 2,000 movies on a shelf in your house or continue to purchase plastic discs/cases to additionally keep. It allows you...

Can someone with a K system comment on how TV is presented on the UI?

Do you get a separate section of the UI for TV vs movies or is it mixed together?

Yeah most of the time you're probably buying something to watch it right away. Unless it's a catalog title or sale perhaps. I was just saying if you would you lose your credit, you can just spend...

8TB hard drives from seagate are coming available very soon for an msrp of $260. They could double the storage in the Alto for only $130.

That's a really good point as well. Just buying any given movie on any service or disc is a cost save vs taking 2-4 people to the theater, plus we have to pay for a babysitter now or lean on family....

That's interesting. Can you not just buy things in their store without having to download them initially? That's a pretty big usability weakness if it forces download like that.

I agree 100% that...

HiFiGuy1, reading your comments, it seems to me that you equate owning something in the K store with having to have it downloaded.

Granted you own the system and I don't yet, but that shouldn't...
