Echostar TR-50 rumoured to be coming soon
I've abandoned cable in favour of HD OTA and AppleTV with the US/Canada iTunes accounts.
Keep an eye out for the Echostar TR-50 OTA HD PVR, rumoured to be coming soon. Also, If you use a PS3 as a Blu-Ray player, there is chatter from Sony that they will bring out a movie download service and HD tuner/PVR addon of their own.
I debate objective data, not subjective my favourite ___ is better than yours rants which usually flame out quickly.
