    Anyone using them? I am on the month free trial and I love streaming the movies instantly on my PS3, but it sucks as there are not alot of new movies that are not streaming (even Nacho Libre). Thats the one con I have with it. I can get blu-rays but have to wait for them.

    Netflix is the greatest movie site known to man. A huge selection and it gets update daily with tons of new movies, all in HQ. Keep netflix man, it's totally worth it.

    I like it, don't get me wrong. I just wish I was able to stream all the newer films that come out on dvd rather then having to get them in the mail.

    Why not just go with PS3? It doesn't cost a cent to play online and PS3 has so much more to it then xbox. ;)

    yeah on new releases, netflix is kinda behind the curve, but you have to think about all the licensing and that when a movie is just released companies want to make as much money off them as they can, and with netflix, it'd be apart of the 15 dollars every user pays, so no profit money to the publisher.

    Netflix real pro is the tv shows, they got tons with nearly every season except the most recent ones, cause of the same problem above.

    With that said , it's only a matter of time before blockbuster and other traditional video rental stores go out of business, and netflix starts charging a little extra fee to play those new releases on demand.

    I don't personally have it, but I've only really heard people recommend it because of the wide selection. Personally, I'm not a huge movie fan, so it really wouldn't be worth it for me. If I was though, I'd definitely consider it cause it def seems to have a ton of movies and goodies haha

    They don't have too many new movies which makes me rather uninterested.

    Netflix to me is the answer to a lot of piracy problems with movie companies. It's all about how easy (cost effective) it is to the user. 8 bucks a month to stream a whole lot of movies? I think even the most frugal person would have to agree with that... it at least eats up less bandwidth and safer than downloading/streaming from other sites.
