Advertisements So let me get this straight... The Cable Co says: We'll give you 500 channels (sic) of HD Programing. Oh, wait - we haven't got the bandwidth. So instead of addressing the bandwidth issue directly, we'll force these POS tuning adapters that 'switch off' unused channels on TiVo-using customers as a Bandaid fix. Now isn't this the way the Internet has always worked, in a matter of speaking? That is to say, when you stream content, you're streaming a single 'channel', just the content you want to see. Granted, as more people start streaming content over the 'Net, there will also be bandwidth issues, but there's little argument that improvements in bandwidth (specifically the Internet backbone) need to be made. But I wonder if the cable operators (maybe with the exception of Verizon FIOS) are so forward-thinking. Does this make any sense?
