Netflix

So, I got rid of my cable last night, since it was about 70 Bucks a month, and a little outside our budget at the moment, And I noticed Netflix is available for the Wii now for just 10 bucks a month.
Does anyone have experience with Netflix?
Is it tv shows or just movies?
Is there additional fees or your flat rate of 9.99 a month?
How is the service overall?
Is there download times?
Is it frustrating, or simple as pie?
Would you reccomend it?
Hook me up with some info nerds.

Re: Netflix

I have Netflix, it's pretty useful.

"Does anyone have experience with Netflix?" Yes, I reccomend it, because you can go on Netflix.com, go and send a movie into instant queue which allows you to watch movies instantly although not all movies/tv shows are avaible for this feature, you can still get everything else through the mail.
"Is it tv shows or just movies?" Both, they have a wide variety of tv shows and movies available.
"Is there additional fees or your flat rate of 9.99 a month?" I'm not sure since I don't pay, but I don't think so.
"How is the service overall?" It's pretty good, my dad has never had any troubles with Netflix and the movies come pretty quickly through the mail.
"Is there download times?" Yes, but the dowload is for the instant queue (mentioned above) only and it's only a short wait.
"Is it frustrating, or simple as pie?" Pretty much simple as pie. I don't see anything really too difficult with it.
"Would you reccomend it?" Yes, I reccomend it. It's way better than Blockbuster.

Hope this helps.

Re: Netflix

I don't have cable. As a matter of fact, I don't even have a television any more. But I have netflix, and it is absolutely great.

I pay 10 bucks a month for 1 DVD and unlimited streaming. I don't really use the DVD, just the streaming. It's TV Shows as well as movies, and the selection is great. There are plenty of obscure movies to watch instantly as well as a lot of more popular stuff, so no matter what you are in to it will probably fit your tastes. Lately I have been watching King Of The Hill and Arrested Development, and I watched the movie Moon a few days ago.

It's really easy to navigate. When I was at my parents' (they have really slow internet) it would take a movie a few minutes to load, but after that it would mostly play fine. Where I am now I have pretty good internet, and a movie loads in an instant.

I can't recommend Netflix highly enough. I feel like I get 100 times the value of cable for a fraction of the price.

Re: Netflix

I'm with everyone else.

IMO, the best pay service these days, hands down beats things like Gamefly, satellite radio, etc.

Personally, I have the the 17.99, two unlimited dvds, although I use it less for DVD's these days.

All of the video is streaming, there is very little download time. Picture quality is based on your connection.

The TV show selection is extensive. Aside from having programs from multiple network and cable channels, it also has programs from a couple of premium channels, including Starz and Showtime (watch Dexter right now)
Concerning movies, there are not a lot of new releases, but with Starz Play feature, there are a lot of popular movies. You are going to find a lot of low budget, B-movies on Netflix streaming.

There are no additional fee from the 9.99. I don't recall at the moment if you have to pay tax.

The service is fantastic. Netflix's warehouses are all over the country. Delivery is general within 1-2 business days.

It is easy as pie. You can add movies to your queue with a mouse click. You can add streaming video either online or directly over Wii (360 in my case)

Re: Netflix

Yep, Netflix is the best out there. I have had it for about a year and not once had a problem with their service. Puts gamefly to shame! Their delivery time is excellent, and they periodically send emails making sure you got your movies on the correct date, and that you are happy and all.

Like Jim said watch Dexter ASAP. One of my favorites and am sure you would love it as well.

The instant streaming is awesome.

I let 2 of my friends use my netflix to watch instant movies only and it works out great for all. I am not sure if it would be possible or if it would be noticeable on the Netflix account(You being in Canada and all) but I would be willing to let you check out my Netflix for you could watch instant movies before it hits your area.

Netflix coming to Canada this fall. But will it be any good? - Parenting: Curious Dad

Canada welcomes Netflix with... lower broadband data caps?

After reading the fine print, the major ISP distributor in Canada, Rogers Communications will be using this as an excuse to try to stick it to the consumer.

Re: Netflix

I used to rent movies, but I went to stores like Blockbuster to do so. This was before I got a DVD player, and after they stopped selling VHS tapes at most stores, so I had no other choice. Netflix seems like a good idea, I like the ability to watch a movie, and then send it back if it sucks, and remember to buy it later if it is good.

You will have to pay the Netflix subscription cost regardless, Rogers will have nothing to do with that. From what I understand is that Rogers is going to put a cap download capacity. AT&T did the same thing here in the states when they released the IPad and IPhone 4. Lets say you get the 2GB plan, with Netflix, it would probably be pretty easy to go over 2GB. If they charge you 20 bucks a month for the 2 GB and you go over, say 2.2 GB, they will charge you an additional 20 dollars.

Re: Netflix

Okay so I guess there must be a difference with netflix and internet because 2 gigs is easily downloaded in a day or 2.
Don't tell me the expect us to only watch 1 movie and 3 or 4 episodes of Charles in charge.

Re: Netflix

You misunderstood my post, "nuts to..." means the same as "forget", upon some further exploration, it's even better than i first thought, tons and tons of channels, classic cartoons, bizarre cartoons, even a little hentai to boot! Heheh, seriously though oodles of stuff, nuts to Netflix. I bet I could even get the UFC ppv's on there.

---------- Post added at 01:52 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:51 AM ----------

Highly recommended for anyone with a Wii. It did freeze a couple times, and some stuff didnt load properly, but heck it's free.

Re: Netflix

Isn't that illegal and you have not update your Wii? Netflix is better unless you live in some weirdo country.

Re: Netflix

Wiimc is a homebrew app, of course it's not illegal. Most of the stuff people stream to it is though. I guarantee you that documentary I just watched is not available on Netflix. (Cult Killer the story of Rick Rodrigez) But I'm not going to argue whether or not it's better than Netflix, because I haven't tried both of them. (hint hint)

Re: Netflix

You didn't answer the part about not updating your Wii. I thought I heard that Nintendo was actively fighting homebrew?

Re: Netflix

My wife updated the thing about a month ago, (I was cheesed at first) but it didn't effect anything.

The key to homebrew is the homebrew channel, each time the wii updates, the homebrew guys do too. So I guess just updated your HBC before you update your Wii. I honestly don't know too much about it. But I don't see why I would ever want to update my Wii, I haven't played any games that required me too as of yet.

Re: Netflix

I barely use my Wii so I don't know about the update frequency either.

Re: Netflix

I imagine the majority or Wii updates are just to block the homebrew channel. Just a guess.

Re: Netflix

So yeah, I feel like like I might have mislead you all about how awesome Wiimc is the Wii doesn't handle it too well, alot of stuff doesn't seen to load at all, I tried like 10 times to get Toy Story 3 to load to no avail. And it seems there are some mild to severe audio sync issues.
However I have been streaming family guy solidly for awhile now, and there are boat loads of things from all over the world to enjoy. So it's a neat alternative if you got no cable. Just not that reliable. It wasn't made for the Wii just ported to it so it's understandable.

Ported from what? Does it work on a PC? I could maybe use it for the streaming thing I posted about.
