I think realneil pointed this little tidbit out:
"Service not available everywhere. All programming subject to change and blackout restrictions."
Errr...since this seems most appealing on long train/bus rides, poor coverage might kill this device. How does it receive it's signal?
Anyway, you're looking at $250 for the device and $324 over the next 3 years in subscription costs.
actually... it would be 3 years of subscription- the free 6 months of service. So the proper way to view it would be closer to 249.99 for the unit and 269.70 for the 3 years of service. It would most likely utilize a national carrier 3g network similiar to Amazons e-book reader. Now considering that a comparable service through cell phone carriers are at least that much then the 8.99 a month doesn't hurt so much. (edited after i discovered flaw in my own logic)
So I can buy this peice of... hardware... And pay $9 a month to use it... Or I can buy a netbook, laptop, Desktop, Xbox 360, or PS3 and pay Netflix $9 a month to use any of those. Hmmm Gonna have to pass on that one...
ON TOP OF THAT!! Plenty of phone companies already of TV on your cell phone. Well at least I know AT&T does, I thought it was a waste of money back then too.
People who love have a ton of gadgets will get this. But most people like to have 1 all inclusive peice of hardware.
