@zeroelement: Wooted up and I concur. It's been round for a while.

EDIT: I did just discover the reboot of Dr. Who on BBCA, and was delighted to hear they offer S1 to S4 streaming. Not so sure about David Tennant (ie the one whose eyes are always HUGE) but still a great find. Is the new Doc any better?

(sorry for creating a huge discussion about Dr. Who)

The streaming movie selection really sucks.

Great deal! I loved this deal so much I moved to 4 different apartments and got 4 new credit cards just to get the deal again. Yeah, I planned those evictions...

@bmw66x: It's just different. No "better" or "worse". I would compare it to BSG and the 2004 BSG. Some people called the re-imagining "GINO", short for "Galactica In Name Only". They just share the same name and premise, but are very different shows. I would however suggest you start with the Eccleston Dr. Who before getting in to Tennant's to get a fuller understanding of the evolving relationship with Rose.

@curtisuxor: Thanks. I'm a sucker for Billie Piper since her work on Secret Dairies. Pleasantly surprised she was Who's interest in S1-4.

@icarususa: well......after three years you have pretty much watched everything that is worth watching on netflix instant stream.....then you start wonderin if it's worth the ten bucks anymore. Netflix is just too slow at getting quality shows on instant stream.

Yes there really is someone who doesn't have Netflix yo, me. Not that I haven't considered it but I do have Amazon Prime and all the free video it offers, Amazon on demand, Hulu Plus, and all the Roku stuff I can stand.

Still I considered it but I'll pass for now.

vote-for1vote-against

Amazon Prime, and yes I'm a member, charges for many of the shows you get for free on Netflix...assuming you are a monthly subscriber of course.

No, it is not Blueray quality, but most of the programs and movies look fine. The quality depends on how fast your connection is so it can vary.

I turned in one of my DirectTV receivers and that paid for Netflix!

We used to be Netflix members and got all our DVD's by mail - LOVED the selection. Now we have it through the Wii - it SUCKS, to be perfectly honest. I've never even heard of half the movies that are listed, and I can't stand the fact that they had only Seasons 1 & 2 of Dexter available and in order to watch the rest of the series we would have had to upgrade back to the mail order version. Terrible. Netflix could be SO much better.

2 months free Netflix is available through the xBox Dashboard. I saw this briefliy when my son was playing yesterday. it seemed to be bundled as 2 months Unlimited Netflix, and 3 months free xBox with purchase of 3 months. Don't kill me here: exact details are on the xBox Dashboard.

question, i thought Netflix membership allowed both streaming and mail delivery of movies? No?

I replaced my cable service with Netflix a few months ago and so far I've been impressed. The selection is a bit skimpy, but I rarely watch tv at all, and when I do I'm usually not looking for anything specific to watch, so it works out well enough.

@tominator2000: "No, it is not Blueray (sic) quality..."

You can say that again! I find nearly everything NetFlix offers to be unwatchable. Even on my puny 32" computer monitor, the picture is beyond awful. You can only imagine how putrid it looks in our bedroom on a 90" screen! I've heard people state that they don't see a difference, but even with NetFlix's so-called "HD" streaming, the PQ is absolutely nowhere near Blu-Ray (not blueray) quality.

Sometimes, even free is too much.

@spyder69696969, actually it is Blu-ray, not Blu-Ray...so...yeah, don't correct someone unless you are absolutely sure...like me! haha

@spyder69696969 oh and if you can afford a 32" monitor for your computer, and a 90" television for your bedroom, you should just be able to afford everything you wanna buy on Blu-ray...Netflix rules!

@korie99: ...then order some more by mail?

I stopped my subscription because I didn't use it enough.

vote-for2vote-against

I just cancelled my sub. I had it for about 3 years and decided to rent Blu-rays through Redbox instead. I just got an iPhone and really loved being able to watch the streaming through my phone, however the content was so lacking, I just cancelled. If the streaming had better movies, I would have kept it. Until them, I will rent 7-8 Blu-Rays for the same money and I will be getting better quality flix. Also, slightly off the subject, anyone signed up for Zediva.com yet? I am on the waiting list to try it out. Hoping it works like I expect it to.

Thoughts on streaming service:
-By no means what I'd call "high definition". Watchable, but nothing to write home about. For $8/mo, not a big disappointment.

-A decent selection of television series(es?) and documentaries is available, but the movie selection is sorely lacking. Very disappointing.

-No Android platform support. Netflix cross-platform support is a big reason why I subscribe despite the previous stated shortcomings (I use it on my PS3 as well as my computers), so to not also have it on my phone is disappointing.

Overall, it's an ok service made better by a decent monthly pricepoint. I'd swiftly reconsider if another service with better selection and/or Android support came along.

Netflix is pretty good for the mailed DVDs, but you really have to keep up on actually watching the movies for it to be worth it. The streaming selection (movies at least, can't comment on TV shows) sucks ass. When I had Netflix my girlfriend and I would spent 15 minutes looking for something to watch and find nothing.

If you watch movies all the time, Netflix is a great deal. If you only have time to watch sporadically like me, stick with Red Box.

Netflix streaming is good if you are willing to look around/ try things. Their browsing isn't the best, but its usable at least.

Quality movies that I wouldn't have known about if it weren't for streaming: Brick, The Good the Bad and the Weird, Bronson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (and its sequels), The Chaser, Ip Man, The Devil's Backbone, and... more, those are just off the top of my head.

Also have some good shows going, including the full series runs of Battlestar Galactica, The Pillars of the Earth, Firefly, The Office, Dresden Files, Arrested Development, Brotherhood, Weeds, Party Down, Saxondale, the IT Crowd, etc

I had Netflix for a while, and I really enjoyed it. I think the problem with the people who can't find anything to watch is that they're set on watching some new movie that just came out and enjoy the social aspect of being able to say, "Hey, Joe? Did you see that giant fireball in Cop Out?! It was rad!", but in order to enjoy Netflix, you really have to let their rating system guide you. Spend an hour rating 500 movies, then click the "Movies you'll love" tab, and scroll through until you find one in the genre you want to see. You'll wind up watching tons of great movies you've never heard of. It's cheaper than cable or satellite service, commercial free, and less frustrating that torrents which hog all the bandwidth and are unable to watch them until they are 100% complete. My only complaint with Netflix is their monthly payment plan. If you were to pay for one month on April 1st and cancel on April 2nd, you'd pay for a month but would only get 1½ days, and that's not fair.

vote-for1vote-against

@ger16: They have different subscription levels. The cheapest is something like you can only watch 5 hours of online content a month and receive 5 DVDs. The next is unlimited online movies only, then it's unlimited online plus 1 DVD at your house at a time, then 2 DVDs, and so on until you get to the Blu-ray plan.

This is not a deal. It is just a big banner ad that looks like a woot deal. Seriously. WTF.

vote-for1vote-against

This may or may not be a "deal" considering how many places you can find this same offer but seriously, if you don't think Netflix is one of the best entertainment values you can find anywhere you're nuts. Between the DVD's shipped to my place overnight and a tremendous variety of old & new movies, documentaries and TV shows, I say my $15 a month is well worth it.

Just when I was going to sign up for Netflix, I heard they just stopped being able to show the Showtime shows I wanted to catch up on watching. Booooo! Now I might not sign up.
