Re: Steaming service stinks
I think the streaming service is pretty good. Th only problem I have had is with my ATT service slowing or becoming unstable.
The movie selection for streaming isn't bad, but I have to agree that newer titles need to be added faster for most people to get any value out of it.
said by Goldman:I think you mean those who only like newer titles won't get any value out of it. There is so much great foreign/indie/classic/obscure content already and they are adding more than I can keep up with. It depends on your tastes. If you like blockbuster Hollywood stuff, NF streaming may not be for you. If you like 'film', NF streaming is a gift of the film gods for only $10-$12/month and 4-5 disc checkouts a month. Would you rather pay $3-$6 per view?

Looking forward to 5.1 and subtitles coming by end of year.
said by xenophon:I agree. Tripping the Rift and The IT Crowd are just two titles I found via Netflix Streaming that I fell in love with. Of course, then there are old favorites that I can watch again like Farscape (at least the first few seasons), Futurama (all seasons and movies!!!!), etc. Meanwhile, my wife's been watching Arrested Development and my kids have been enjoying Rugrats.

I mean that most people that want newer movies will simply download them rather than pay for Netflix in it's current form. There is a huge untapped base of customers that download rather than pay for older movies they have either already seen or don't care about.
