The downside: The video quality of streaming services is often inferior to cable TV, McGuire says.

He's too kind. It's not inferior, it's downright crap on a 50" screen!

Kinda depends on the service. Videos I have purchased from the iTunes store look great on my 50" screen. But download times are a factor on my DSL service that maxes out at about 1.5 mbps.

A service that can average 8 Mbps should be fine for high quality streaming video.
