I too checked out guba. The problem for me is that i am OOC (out of the country). I live in Shanghai, China and there are tons of expats here. It seems to me that all the expats living worlwide would be the PRIMARY audience for sites such as Guba, ABC (when they were hosting shows), NBC, etc... YET, they do not allow access from outside the US. I know there is always a proxy service, but that is too much hassle and becomes very slow from "way out there" (define way out there as you will). The people MOST likely to want to acquire LEGAL copies of movies and TV shows are the ones abroad where they cannot watch programs in their own language, but they are not given any options. This seems like a missed market to me.
Well after the Mon. pocast (love BOL) I thought I would check out GUBA and it's pretty cool, great prices but drm_ed to death. WMV format so it's protected and worse you can only watch it on the computer it's orig. purchased on. This is a show stopper for me, the movie folks just don't have a clue. So to anyone out there make sure you purchase the show or movie on the machine you intend to watch it on which is fine if it's a media machine and hooked to you TV but in my case I wanted to transfer it to my laptop thats a big no! no!. I guess for $0.49 I'll buy it (Babylon 5 pilot)again off my laptop
Oh well at least there getting the price about right!
