The company mantra is quantity not quality. More quantity means more
possible subs. And that's the bottom line - we can jump up and down all
we want, it is not going to change. And when H264 rolls in, don't think
that quality will improve. It will for a short while, until the
bandwidth is required for the Knitting Channels, more sports, and
various businesstv channels.
