Another forum that I inhabit has an extensive user list of such devices. From what I have read it appears to be nothing much more than fancy set top box that is geared to net TV. The same can be implemented using a PC. XMBC is available for the PC and, with a bit of tweaking can provide the content as described.

If you are familiar with Netflix, Hulu, et al, then that is the sort of thing that it does. Might be easier in this format, but it would need a reasonable speed internet connection, and a reasonable download limit, too.

I have often said that if I could have a legal copy of a film to watch at home when they are in the cinema I would pay similar prices. I know it wouldn't give total immersion but it would have other benefits.

Not that expensive.
If true, I'd love to have it:o

I was discussing this with a couple of people tonight who say they can watch films on their TV that are still in the cinema here.
