is this just a personal opinion?

me, actually i can see a great move toward TS also for storing..

i think about the HDV storage cassette; there is a TS inside the tape.

the forecoming blu ray technology has a TS inside the optical diskette
(but i have to say there's a PS inside the HD-DVD disk; who's going to
win, i dont know..)

IMHO i believe that in the medium term there's no space for two
different storage standards: to hassle to maintain both up to date

the TS is going to succeed because:

- it's where all the development for newer services is going to be done
- you can store the broadcast straight on the disk
- the "bucks per storage byte" index is going lower and lower..
