The more forum responses I read lead me to believe that the effort, cost to download, and lower quality of LLVJ do not equal the convenience of the "late" DVD.
I don't own or use Apple TV, nor do I anticipate doing so in the near term.
To me, the concept of the video journal is to to go to the next level of entertainment/education. In my definition the video journal should not require buying specialized equipment beyond what I currently own, or investing a great deal of effort/time. (I continue to be a purchaser of new technology in selected areas.)
I look forward to continuing to receive DVD's, at least in the near term. The cost/value equation of the downloaded LLVJ, for me, is out of sync.
Thanks for listening.
