    This would be great if the Wii could support HD

    notice how all teh available shit to watch is kiddie cartoons? thats because the only people dumb enough to use this are the soccer moms that dont know about setting up homebrew. most people that would be cruising this site, in the wii hacking section, can figure out how to download a movie and play it with mplayer ce.

    plus with the shitty wifi capabilities we have seen with the wii games, i wouldnt try to watch a movie. i cant even stay connected long enough to play 1 hour of marioKart. get ready to watch the beginning of a movie 4 or 5 times before it finally plays the whole thing.

    Well we will see how this plays out. Maybe it will be a success if they release content people actually want to watch.

    Well the Kirby anime is cool though, although it can get annoying sometimes. I'd watch it [​IMG].

    I'm not a fan of the whole "pay for one view" system though. It sounds like that's what this is. If I had to pay, I'd rather pay once to watch as many times as I want, whenever I want; or at least be able to watch it as much as you want within a certain time limit, like a rental. Then again, I'd rather not pay at all [​IMG].

    Good idea though. The Wii needs something like this for its legit users.

    You sound like a very angry person and I hope whatever is going on in your life that you get well soon. Also your ~1 hour max of connectivity sounds like a personal problem.


    Anyway I have no opinion either way as it's only in japan and therefore doesn't concern me. However I've already got my own "on demand service" that i'm content with.

    I think it looks neat. Something new that might attract more sales.

    Damn! Not every fraking thing has to be in HD. I bet you were not bitching about HD 5 years ago! SD quality can still look good. I HATE HD snobs! as for this theatre feature, I think its great and cant wait to see it hit the U.S. soon!

    Unless you actually USE the shop, internet, and weather channels then you can easily change your shop channel to Japanese. Then you can use this wherever you are. In fact.... I'm gonna check this out right now [​IMG]

    Darn nit... this requires an updated shop channel again. It'll take me a few minnutes with NUS since DoP-IOS doesn't automatically check the servers for the latest versions... does it?

    Seriously, all you HD Snobs are ignorant! I am going to go get some milk strait from a cow, need to go feed my horses so my Horse and buggy setup is good and ready for action. I just hate those car Snobs with their gasoline! What snobs!
