I think I'll stick to Boxee & Amazon's new $0.99 purchase priced tv shows.

Ace, who do you think would win over the most content? Or do you think they both will have a good amount to sell?

Re: New Apple TV Announced

I think Apple will get the better deals. They already have time tested distribution and can back everything up with stats. Successful stats at that. Plus, the fact that they are offering companies the chance to distribute with DRM riddled rentals... movie & tv companies LOVE DRM!!! The more DRM, the better the chances of getting a contract. Their contracts are probably typed up on DRM riddled proprietary computers, using software that only runs on those specific computers and prints on a very proprietary printing system.

To be honest I don't care about the amount of content as much as I do the quality. If netflix or amazon doesn't have the show I want I'll, well, yea "download" it. But for $1 to buy the show from amazon I'll be glad to do it. I've looked at amazon and it's only so far fox and I think abc? Or one of the "bc's". But you still get to buy it, and it seems like this is just another way for amazon to earn some cash on the side.

Haha, and like brent said, it will be full of drm.

720P isnt something to worry about (although who doesnt love some 1080 ;) ) but i agree with the DRM crap
