DONT buy a sony player, that are notorious for not playing copies well,

I have never had any trouble with the shops on riverside or the 4th floor at sorya mall and always ask if its a good copy an they tell me truthfully ( unlike in Thailand)

if they are bad they will take them back , its only $150
but with pirate bay why buy any movies at all??

1.47 mbps? wow;
speedtest.net
my speed here in Phuket is 11.08 Mbps

Check out this test, http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest more reliable
use first link (flash download)
and than choose la;

i get 5.8 Mbps

Can you explain how watching a streamed movie is not downloading it?
Meaning you can stream live.

You get that streaming anything, including YouTube, is actually (temporarily) downloading it, right? So if you're going to chew the bandwidth, you might as well keep the file...

I dig. I don't need to keep files. My days of piles of hard drives are over. Spotify for music, Showbox for video.

I use Oneclickwatch.org . It has numerous free links for streaming or download. Experiment which links work for you.

Both quick releases of UK,US,AUS,NZ TV shows and Movies. Hardly torrent now unless looking for oldies.

horace, download and install VLC media player, it knocks spots off Windows Media Player and plays anything

You may want to get the laser reader on your laptop DVD reader cleaned by a tech company as well if it's old
