Sad things

No per month price plan. That’s very bad.
The “Starter” plan looks just strange. 500 GB, 2300 hours of streaming, two hundred bucks to go — is this a “starter”???
Why don’t implement light plans for about $5-10 per month and 50-100 GB of video?

Though the basic idea of the service is clean and good. =(

Cool Stuff

Just getting started. Technology looks good and support has thus far been excellent.
