I've been curious about this myself, although I tried not to think about it too much for two reasons-
1. Most of the web-enabled content sucked. The Transformers one was pretty cool and I used alot of those downloads alot (even though they made my player freeze a couple of times).
2. there isn't anything I can do to change the fact that the servers are/will eventually go down.
I'm gonna check out some of my HD DVD's later this week and see what happens.

I tried with Bourne Ultimatum, BSG Season 1, and Eastern Promises, and gave up from there. So you have to manually disconnect from the internet, and then load your discs.
No kidding, Universal HD-DVD discs are a problem now! I have to unplug the Ethernet connection. Frankly, I just keep it unplugged now because there's been nothing interesting about BD-Live yet.

It would be a service for LG to provide a firmware update to allow a setting to turn off Ethernet access for HD-DVDs on the BH200. And the same for the Sammy combo player, although I don't have one so I don't really care.
