Advertisements My first line was meant as a joke no one has ever needed a TiVo or even TV for that matter - none of this is a necessity it all optional. Why? From what I see there is more of a chance that people will dump cable and go to OTA with a good DVR and add Internet streaming instead of dumping their DVR and adding streaming. I time shift 100% of my viewing so to get rid of my DVR means streaming everything not likely to happen anytime soon. Really? I think not. Quality over the Internet is still very low and bandwidth is going to become more of an issue. If you don't care about quality that is your business but don't assume most people with 50+ inch set bought them to view low quality HD. The exception is to find someone who has replace a DVR with streaming only and is happy paying more and watching lower quality HD. Maybe someday for those lucky enough to live in the right place but I listed all the reason why it isn't going main stream anytime soon.
