Pioneer Launches SyncTV, TV Download Servce

Pioneer's launched an invite-only beta of its online TV download service, SyncTV, which has unlimited downloads in channels for $2 to $4 a month per channel. Shows outside of your subscription run $2. The selling point is that everything's in at least DVD quality, and in HD w/ 5.1 Dolby surround when possible. And it'll run on Windows, Macs and Linux.
