I just downloaded and watched my first Caspa movie.
New realease the art of war 3 for $6.95
It was DVD quality at 576i and clear to watch on my 42" plasma TV.
I selected it at 8.00pm during peak time and it downloaded 968 mb at full speed in 15mins
to the tivo box and we could watch it while it was downloading.
Everything went fine and I was impressed by the service..

Now we just need more New release titles to watch :-)

Glad to hear it went well. My experience with 'Ghost Town' was very similar - and yes, the only thing really holding the service back is the lack of decent titles.

But happy that you're happy!

It didn't say what the audio was sorry, It was an Mpeg4 movie though I think..

I've called Telecom via (0800 my tivo) and gone through options for other/billing support to mention the lack of movies ... and to mention I felt mislead based on Telecom's promotional add's and telecom's adds on the website.

Telecom website states hit movies? I guess the hit movies which are 5-10 years old? Bad Boys 1? Men in Black 1? Charlies Angles?

I also sent a suggestion via the tivo website stating similar points. I am quite disappointed, Why isnt there hit movies that were actually hits at the cinemas, which are "recent"

For example: Transformers 1, Twilight 1, The Dark Knight, I'm just stating movies which were hugely popular at the cinemas that are over a year ago...

Maybe we need to all ask/send suggestions so they can improve the movie offerings?

I guess NZ is in the very early days of streaming media - compared with the likes of the USA.

This is very much toe-in-the-water stuff for Telecom and the cost of new movies vs older ones is probably quite high.

Not sure what contract they have with Sony to provide downloadable content but I do agree to feeling miffed by the lack of choice at the moment.

I feel that most people here have been victims of some sales promises that have yet to be met...

Unlikely to see any of these if they are not owned/distributed by Sony as no other companies have joined (at the moment) to provide CASPA content...
