If you got that 86% faster than the US from speedtest.net then it's not entirely accurate. speedtest.net gets those speeds from people who take the tests.
The point of my 4K to 1080p BD comparison is that if I can get video quality much better than bluray now while streaming was that it's possible now for some people. The problem is "some people" is like 10% of the everyone, which is why current movie streaming sites/application aren't as good as BD, they want to cater to most people to get more money.
I never said it was an option for everyone. That is why I said you can get external optical drives. Someone even said blu-ray playback isn't even native in Windows, so why are people even complaining about this?
It seem most of OCN completely forgets about everything to do with computers when it's a thread about Apple, they aren't doing it specifically to get iTunes sales. Have you seen the new iMac and the retina MacBook Pros? Where exactly are you supposed to fit an internal optical drive?. And yes, one third of postcodes in the UK have crap connection, one third have reasonably good connection and one third have really good connections.
Right and all the influx of iTunes movide sales will just be totally unfortunate, right?
It's about iTunes primary, thinner computers secondary.
