I got my dad an ATV for his birthday last week. They have a very slow internet connection. They're in a rural area and the only high speed option is something called fixed wireless. It's slow but beats dial up, obviously. After getting it set up for them, I logged into my iTunes account to try it out. Any movie I tried to play would say it would start in 7 hours or whatever. So I changed it to standard definition and it went down to about 43 minutes but even that increased to a couple hours after waiting a few minutes. The strange thing is Netflix streams in perfect HD with almost no buffering. Is the required MBPS that different between Netflix and iTunes? Haven't had him try any other channels but I should see if something like Crackle works too. I included an ethernet cable to hopefully help with this issue, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Netflix works fine whether it's through WiFi or ethernet. They can change their internet plan to a faster speed but the usage is on it is terrible. Right now their speed sucks but they have unlimited usage.. so it's sort of a catch 22.
