Depends, I've seen some excellent examples of HD streaming video in the 8000kbps area which technically can be streamed over Comcasts highest plan now. the issue is if everyone did that they don't have the infrastructure to support it. The current crop of "HD" streams are in the 2000kbps to 4000kbps range which is only a samll fraction of what a typical blu Ray is encoded at.
Try the T2 video here at the bottom of the page, it's excellent example of what can done. It's just below 9000kbps : http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/ii ... ming/demo/
