A la carte streaming?

Do they off that, or is it all subscription based? If the former, I would ocasionally use the service.

No a la carte, subscription only, but at $7.99 a month it's very reasonable.

It's not bad, but we wouldn't really need it except for maybe a movie every month or two at the most. So, I'd rather pay $2.99 per shot or so.

It's subscription based. I pay 11.99 a mo for unlimited streaming and 1 blu-ray out at a time using snail mail.
They have a pretty good selection that you can choose from to queue up the instant or dvd/blu-ray.

It's bettter than a la cart` with no commercials. You can just watch what you want to. Hrmm ultra a la cart`

Amazon is pretty decent for that, or if you have an Xbox, the selection on Xbox Live isn't terrible. It'd be nice if Netflix had the option, too, though.

I wonder if it will have a la carte though, since they seem to be more subscription based. Hopefully it will, since the convenience factor would be pretty high.

11.99? I think I am paying 8.99 with unlimited streaming and 1 dvd/blu-ray out.

It's 8.99 if you dont get the added $2 charge for blu-ray.
The first month was free, the 2nd month they charged me 12.03.

I looked around on Amazon and could not find a subscription option. I must be missing something.

I was looking for a non-subscription service, which Amazon is and vpoko pointed out.

Sorry I skimmed some of the comments and misread this.
