Oh, and they’re throwing in a Nexus 7 tablet in as your remote.

I'm happy with my Roku 2 XD. Google TV can suck a dick, they're not getting my money.

Well, to be fair you do have to live in Kansas City to get the service. It looks like they have a pretty nice line up of programming too. I think I'd pay $70/Month for 1000Mbps... because I pay $70 for 20Mbps right now. It's a neat idea that I hope continues to expand.

I think for the first time in my life I'm jealous of Kansas City for something

Speaking in my capacity as a New York/CT East coast self-righteous liberal, I agree with that sentiment very, very much.

Hoping this brings down the cost of other providers eventually.

comments from the uninformed are always hilarious.

you have to preregister and enough people in your neighborhood have to preregister before they bring the service into your area
