Microsoft’s movie download service is broken

At least for me it is. I started my V for Vendetta download yesterday some time around 3:30 or 4 p.m., I’m not quite sure when exactly. Well, I wake up on a very lazy Thanksgiving morning to find that my download was stopped (second time this happened) and when I restart it, it currently sits at 18% completion. What a great service Microsoft! It’s like you made the downloads so slow because you wanted to give Netflix a chance to get the movie to me before you can. Genius, and really gracious of you too!

Is anyone else having MAJOR problems with this service? Am I the only one that Microsoft seems to want to play this cruel joke on? Should I just give up on this and download the Lost Planet multiplayer demo? I’m so torn.
