Who else is subscribed to Netflix?

It's been a few months that I've signed up with them (I was late to the game) and I think it's f'n fantastic. For 9 bucks a month you get a lot - almost any DVD delivered to your house (there hasn't been a movie/doc I haven't found), you can also instantly watch thousands of movies or tv shows directly on your computer or on your ps3/xbox 360.

A must have for any movie buff.

Oh, and they also have tons of bluray movies, so don't have to buy those expensive ass movies.

I thought it was just a flat monthly fee for as many as you wanted. I looked into it briefly and I was really close to doing it but I didn't.

I really should. 9 bucks a month is nothing.

I bought my parents a subscription as a gift for Christmas, and I use it on my Xbox all the time. Best idea ever. They've been putting some pretty good movies on the instant stream lately.

Netflix > Blockbuster. I get movies much faster with Netflix and the movies I receive are not all scratched unable to be watched. I hate Blockbuster with a passion. I'll spare you all the rant, but in short, Yes, I love Netflix.

Blockbuster fails. They don't really have much games either and a lot of times they are scratched and you won't be able to play them.

Netflix makes me laugh at blockbuster.


I subscribe to two movies a month but get the most use out of my online que on Xbox Live, can't beat that. I wish the 'watch instantly' would be updated a bit more and a better selection, maybe an HBO package with Starz but I get the point, they still want you to be mailed the good movies.


Still though I love it, for what I pay it's awesome, I watch something every night on it, and I found alot of old ass movies I used to love like 'Howard the Duck', classic stuff :D


I <3 Netflix but use the watch instant que way more then I mail stuff in but their very quick on getting stuff back to you, takes a day at most.


I think mine is like 12$ or something for 2 a month, I think if you get up to 5 movies per month it's like 18$ or 20$, it's not a charge per movie. But honestly as fast as they send them out to you I don't see a need to hold 5 at a time, just get 1 or 2, mail it back monday morning and your new movie will be there Tuesday, I didn't see the need to pay extra money for 5+ movies at one time.

I switched over to Netflix a couple years ago after Blockbuster Total Access started limiting the way and how much you could return/take home from the stores (while also increasing the fees).

I cancelled my cable and just watch TV shows and movies on my PS3/PC/laptop. Love Netflix, but wish I'd remember to put movies in the mail on a more regular basis.

This was added just the other day on the watch instantly queue:

Yes I know I should have saw this when it came out and being that Superbad is in my top 5 all-time I know anytime these guys get together it's always funny as ****, but seriously I haven't laughed this hard in a long ass time.


Michael Cerra is instant classic, also the dude who played the paraplegic on Something about Mary(wish I knew his name but that's the role that comes to mind) was golden, I'm buying this on blu ray this weekend and it's an instant classic for me.


This is why I <3 Netflix, every so often you get a new movie like this, the cast was awesome, and I can only imagine the deleted scenes and extra footage will be even better. If you haven't seen this you need to do so NOW!

Year One was an awful movie.

I love Netflix for the simple fact that they have some awesome TV shows on there. That's what I mainly use it for.

ps, they just added Seasons 1-3 of NewsRadio on instant streaming. Phil Hartman is absolutely brilliant in that show and there's some other good performances as well. Classic show. Used to watch it all the time but they stopped showing reruns, sooooooo glad it's available again.

I keep waiting for them to add seasons 10-18 or whatever, I figure they have to do it at some point, or so I thought :(

People pay money to watch movies and tv shows? Is it the connivence factor?

Netflix is awesome but they have some seriously crappy shows/movies that no one cares about available for streaming.
