    Dedicated server will be your best bet. You'll have all the space of the server for your media files.

    Several things I should point out:
    1. Don't try to host any of that on a shared server! Overselling is a common practice and you'll be kicked out of any webhost before you hit 75GB. It's called resource limit. Most shared host's servers don't even have the storage for 1,000GB.

    2. 99.9% of all multimedia files are copyrighted. The DMCA has strict policies against hosts allowing copyrighted content without permission. You should not expect to host any copyrighted material (regardless of whether you bought it or not) on a host. That includes: MP3s, music, tv shows, movies, images, etc.
    I'm currently hosting with: hostgator

    You Definitely need your own server... Not shared hosting, no VPS

    You will need your own server and likely you'll have to pay to upgrade it to give you 1tb of space (1000gb)

    Most of the dedicated servers I have seen only come with 80~500gb, although there are exceptions I am sure.

    Definitely your own server and lots of disk space.

    What are some of your other requirements? Do you need a control panel? How much bandwidth do you need? Is this just for storage, or will others be accessing the files (meaning you'll need more bandwidth)?
