Last night I was watching Joan of Arcadia, using a direct antenna input for a better analog signal, and I noticed my Motorola doing a download. Immediately I knew it was the software upgrade for the OnDemand.
After Joan concluded, I investigated by pressing the Menu command. A new "pop up" menu greeted me with 3 choices, one being OnDemand. Yes, some of the choices are free, but they are not primo, but more like promo, in some cases only several minutes in length, basicly demos.
Yes, I do have full access to Showtime OD, but can only see previews of HBO OD. It is offering to sign me up, though.
My first impression is mixed. It is a novelty play toy right now. I doubt that I will pay to download a movie that is not wide screen, lacks the defintion of DVD, and is not Dolby 5.1. I did not even mention that it is not HD. They have a long ways to go before my buck burns a hole in my remote control.
