I came across this interesting promotional thing from chorus on facebook promoting hyperfibre. I hope these were legal downloads through Disney+ lol.

I think they mean downloading it in FHD or possibly 4K legitimately from a streaming/download service...

I think Disney+ only supports downloading to mobile devices, so is there a phone or tablet that can store 1.6TB? Is there another way of legally downloading Marvel movies in Blu-ray quality?

While we're just throwing wild speculation and accusations out there, I suspect Donald Trump is really 6 Aliens stuck together with stickytape, their real plan is to eat all the trees on the planet.

Does any legitimate service offer the download of Blu Ray Remux quality?

 

 

 

Regardless that (if true) is very impressive. Average speed of 234 MB/s or 1877Mb/s. That's well faster than the write speed of a typical 7200rpm drive, and and the 1.65Tb size is bigger than typical for SSD's in residential settings.

 

Also the references to Wifi 6, I suspect they used a "Wifi 6 router" but plunged in a hardwire. Real world proformance testing seems to imply that Wifi 6 Tops out about at 1.5 Tbps in the real world.

Of course does beg the question of the need to download 50 hours of content in 2 hours. I guess somebody could be downloading content to consume over their holiday in a location with poor internet...

It doesn't list the UHD file sizes, but a 2:15 1080p movies is 8.22GB, quite a bit lower bit rate than is typical on Blu Ray disks.

Why bother going on holiday if you are going to spend it all plopped in front of the telly?

I went on holiday in Northland to a beach and it bucketed down for the five days, no TV signal, no internet, just the barest hint of cellular data. With some other couples and about eight kids....

Is my simplistic approach wrong that their maths doesn't add up

 

1650 GB of movies across the 23 films in the MCU is about 71.7GB per movie, thats more than even a dual layer Blu-ray can hold (50bg right?), 4k discs may hold more, unsure, but maybe they also d/loaded all the extra feature discs too?

 

Also don't forget the Blu-rays hold the uncompressed audio tracks (either Dolby or DTS versions with possibly atmos/DTS-x), whereas no streaming platform offers such high bandwidth audio, so again, cast doubts on either their claim or the legitimacy of the d/load source

71GB is in the upper range I'd expect for a UHD title with a single video and audio stream. I have one that is 79.9GB.

Ha, it was a bay in Tutukaka somewhere. Oh for a TV with USB and a stick full of movies.
