Charlie over at DVICE got a chance to check out the XStreamHD entertainment system that’s currently under development and in beta. The satellite-based XStreamHD works using the concept of “pre-fetched entertainment.” which means you can view movies without having to download or stream. The data for up to 40 movies is sent to your box during the night ready for you to view whenever you’re ready. All Blu-Ray quality.
When you want to watch a movie just unlock it and play it immediately. There’s a monthly fee of $10 plus a fee for each movie watched but XStreamHD claims that it will keep prices in line with amazon and iTunes rentals.
