Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

checkraise,

thanks. looking forward to future updates on your crappy internet connection.




edit: I've watched probably 50-75 hours of "Watch Instantly" and only had to wait for loading during a movie twice, both times while using my school's crappy wireless. Otherwise perfect.

Talking Heads are my favorite band of all time, and this film (that's right bitches, FILM) rules. Glad you liked it.

Bump because I watched Losing Ground (2005) which was....interesting. Something most of us can probably relate to in some fashion, even if just in the "these guys pay my bills" sense.

Just watched all of 30 Rock season 1, but that's the only thing I've used it for so far. Still, pretty nice, because Hulu didn't have it for some reason.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Nice list.

If you like good war movies I'd move Das boot and bridge on the river kwai to the top, two of the best ever made. Primer, eraserhead, Close encounters, and donnie brasco are all excellent as well.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Don't know if anyone saw this today, but the stock shot up almost 10% after Netflix announced that they are releasing a $99 device that streams movies to any tv. One time charge, does not affect # of rentals in package etc.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

I am very close to ordering one. The Watch Instantly is nice, but pc viewing sucks. even with a nice set up. So I would much rather watch all this stuff on my big screen.

Just wish it was HD.

it will be eventually: The Netflix Player is HD-ready. It has all the connections you need to connect it to your HDTV, and it’s capable of playing back HD content. When Netflix releases HD content for Instant Watching, the Netflix Player by Roku will be ready.

I'd have to upgrade my i-net connection.. 1.5Mbit DSL just doesn't cut it for Watch Instantly.

So the $99 set-top box only works for Watch Instantly movies? Pretty sick still but would be insanely sick if it was for more.

Eventually 100% of movies will be on Watch Instantly, assuming all the movie studios get their heads out of their butts. Once they get permission, Netflix can digitize movies in no time.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

i am VERY tempted by the roku, especially since it's hd-ready for when netflix offers it

however, i am not currently a netflix member and so i can't see how good their '10,000 movies and shows' selection is...anywhere i can go to see this? their site only shows a handful
