| Although, If a STandard High Definition disc has, say, 50 GB's of info on it, we'd all have to hope that a service like FIOS gets speeds higher than 10GB's per second for that to be feesable... |
I don't think requiring downloads of 50GB in less than 5 seconds will determine feasibility... although that would be very nice!
Considering you can start a download and then multitask, or even just do something else other than be on the PC will mean most consumers aren't going to be put off by downloads that might take even as much as a few minutes.
If it takes hours, well then that is something all together different, and might turn off impulse buyers. Although comparing a few hours download where you can still do something else to getting a disc from NetFlix, ordering online and having it shipped, or from any B&M rental or retail outlet, it would still be a faster and/or more convenient delivery system.
