  1. Thanks Kevin, for the (good old) and some (new viewing)on Retrovision! We live in a rural area of S.E. Washington State and have a wireless Internet connection that is delivering only 2 mbps, but Retrovision works pretty well and so does Netflix. (but not Hulu or Hulu Plus.) Surprising with such a weak signal. Our service is from PocketiNet out of Walla Walla, WA. They cover from Walla Walla to Oregon and west to Yakima, WA. and points in between. Glad to hear your Thanksgiving went well. So did ours! Thanks again, Larry and Allan near Benton City, WA.

  2. I’m in Oregon. The server is in Missouri. I am paying for good internet service, so I’m glad it makes the trip. Most of this stuff is encoded at half a megabit, which was on purpose. That’s a bad DSL connection. This seems to more or less work everywhere. Even New Zealand. I give my ISP high marks on bang for the buck. Here I have Frontier fiber optic and wow is it fast.

    • I’m in Melbourne, Australia and never had any problems viewing the films here (since I joined a few years back)
      Have not celebrated “Thanksgiving” since I moved to Melbourne… 30 years ago!! Most summers (your winter)are too hot to have the oven on…. thus, “shrimps on the barbie”!! for Christmas.

      • Ah winter in Oregon. It’s like living in a car wash. It has actually been unseasonably nice for a couple days, but back to the torrent on Monday.

        Australians should adopt the custom. What’s not to like? Food. Beer. A day off. Watch sports.

        You could skip Black Friday.

        For the last week or so, places outside US and Canada have been served from Germany. Glad Australia still works.

        • Australians find the meal…”too heavy”… no problem with beer and sports though…I’m not sure Australians have anything to be thankful for…Christmas equals ‘madness’ down here… strange with no snow.
