    Netflix is blessing

    I see they are no offering me unlimited access to their online library of movies and tv shows. I can now catch up on some of the tv shows I missed.

    I think Blockbuster is getting the boot in this race. I heard that they will be increasing their prices soon.

    Have been using netflix since college and have yet to dissapointed with them. Great service.

    Netflix is being hurt today by the announcement that Apple is in with nearly all the major movie studios.

    Its all new and shiny now, but it comes down to whether or not Apple can make it work.

    True. Apple TV has been a huge disappointment so far and I'm not the type of person that wants to watch a movie on PC. Also 99% of the people don't have a HTPC. I don't see them as a true threat to Netflix yet.

    Re: Netflix is blessing

    I think I'll go for this as soon as somebody figures out how to use the 360 as a MCE for Netflix. Works fine for other services like Unbox, Movielink, etc. But I don't think anybody has got it to work for Netflix. Correct me if I'm wrong.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    I've been considering either Netflix or Blockbuster Online for awhile now. I was actually leaning towards Blockbuster because I like the idea of being able to go to the store to exchange movies instantly, yet still getting the larger selection from the online service. If they're going to be raising their prices I will have to rethink that...

    Research before taking my word on the price hike. I heard it, but we know how hearsay is. You also have to take into account your mail location. When I lived in Wisconsin we got our movies within a day or so. Since moving back to Sioux City, it takes a few days. Stupid mail. =)
