Re: Netflix and Internet use

You must be joking certainly not better than HD Optik.
Plus the fact there are many different shows not just one. At $2.99 a shot would be very expensive per month.
By the way I am Android and PC.Not an Apple fan.

You must be failing grade 8 math. At $1212+tax per year with HBO, Super Channel and AMC, cable or IPTV is pretty expensive. You could buy 40 TV seasons on iTunes for that price. With Bluray you would be looking at 20 - 40 seasons depending on the price.

If you really had a large TV you wouldn't have made that crack about Optik's quality either lol.

Enjoy your shilling/trolling. You do realize some people still take value away from the common sense posts such as this no matter how much white noise you try to spew out to mask it.

My oh My sorry you are so upset.
They do say the truth hurts the most.

Are you kidding me??? Optik HD is not even in the same realm as Netflix for Picture Quality... Look at the many, many different threads discussing this issue... I like the service as a whole, but PQ is something they need to work on.

Kruisey, you seriously add NOTHING of value to any of these discussions. All you are doing is adding disinformation and picking fights with everyone..

Does Netflix own its on ISP now ?
I never pick fights with anyone.
I just write the true facts.
Why do some of you bother to write all these negative items about Telus.?
If your not satisfied change your ISP.

Well, it's a mixed bag. In your defense, it is true that Netflix does not provide Internet. One very educational and true fact. Kudos for the valuable research you did to bring this fact to us.
On the other hand, you are wrong about Optik's video quality. And about not picking fights.

Optik quality is terrible in comparison to any of the download services. iTunes and Microsoft are free from the terrible compression through TELUS.

As for the pricing, if you watch 3 or 4 shows, you can buy season passes for those shows. Since they're the only reason you're watching the pay channels, you end up paying less for more. $32 for homeland, which is about 12 eps, 3 months worth. Better quality, always have it, includes extras. If you watch other shows on the channel, then it doesn't make sense. But there's no question you will certainly see that Optik HD quality is nowhere near as good. My wife doesn't notice the difference in quality, but she also doesn't mind watching a show in SD when she could easily find it in hd. You may be along the line of her tastes.

I got a new TV a few months ago and my pictures have improved 100% its the latest Samsung smart TV.
Some of the movies have not got the colour quality others do.
The live shows like CBC and Global TV news are excellent.
Homeland does come over really well on this set.Have the HDMI for sound.
Wow I hope they have a Season Three of Homeland its the best show ever.

I hooked my Blu-Ray up to my 2.9 subfeed mux and reversed it through my co-ax attenuator. When I had that going, netflix was playing pretty good. Like it wasn't what you were describing Kruisey, but it was pretty damm close.

I looked at Netflix it does not have the newest shows and I have seen the movies it offered.Thats probably why it is cheaper because it has older shows and films.
Nice price for those that have not already seen the contents.

Actually I do love' Homeland' .Very clever script writers.

That's partly because content owners don't want Netflix (and any other online streaming) to dig into their traditional TV ad revenue and DVD sales.

Thus the ridiculous delays anywhere from months to years before stuff makes it to Netflix.

And then there's all the licensing issues, for which the CRTC is partially to blame.

Services like Netflix have so much potential, but are unfortunately on a very short leash.
