Actually on an xbox-360 you can browse them now.

you can watch instantly without putting it in your queue. the queue is just an added convenience for saving things you may want to watch later.

also, get netflix. its awesome.

if you like charlie kaufman screenplays (Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine), i'd recommend "Synecdoche, NY". disclaimer: most people i talk to hate it and call it pretentious.

Last night I tried this horror series I'd never heard of called The Hunger. There's at least one softcore scene per episode.
pfft.... Softcore. 9 Songs is available for streaming. Check toward the end.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

i got netflix based on this thread an am really enjoying it. pretty sick how quickly they can get the movies to you. watch instantly is pretty good too - not a ton of stuff i want to watch, but enough that it's a nice perk.

I got started on Weeds 1&2 and watched all of the Friday Night Lights (which was actually very good).

I watch via Samsung Blu-Ray player on my HDTV.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

I have Netflix unlimited 1-out only. To upgrade to Blu-Ray is I believe a $2 surcharge. Does that $2 remain constant no matter how many discs your plan is or does it scale?

This is excellent, thanks. They've really seemed to up the quality of shows on Watch Instantly. I was really excited when it launched, but that quickly faded when I realized there was so much crap (they've always had decent documentaries, though). Now, I can easily find something worth watching. And it's kind of silly, since it's not like my computer is even out of reach, but browsing on the 360 is awesome.

Netflix streaming is coming to the PS3
You will have to use a special DVD, but it will work. Sounds like it is a work around on the 360's "exclusive" deal.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Pretty much every '80s sex comedy (and by "every", I mean like 5) is on there. Private Lessons, Private School, Private Resort...

In that vein, if you ever find yourself in quick need of a chubby chick to jack it to, go to American Pie: The Naked Mile. The scene is close to the beginning. I would assume there are more conventionally hot girls naked later in the flick.

I wouldn't worry about it. Most people prefer actual porn when we spank it. Which is available for free on many sites btw.Unless you are like 15 and looking to not leave a history of porn on your mommy's computer.

My mom would see that I was watching a "late night comedy" on Netflix anyway.

I wish there was some easy way to sort watch instantly movies by rottentomatoes rating.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Hey, has anyone actually used the PS3+disc to watch instantly? Had a couple of quick questions:

- Is the interface generally easy to use?
- Can you browse movies not in your queue?
- What are the wait times like for streaming normal def? HD, if available?

TIA.

Very simple to use. You keep the disc and it doesn't count towards your allotted number of movies. You put the disc in the ps3 and it gives you an activation code. You login into netflix and enter the code and you're good to go. The disc just needs to be in the ps3 to access your watch instantly stuff. You are not able to browse movies that aren't in your watch instantly queue but that isn't that big of a deal since it; easy to add them. The wait times are very fast with no hiccups in playback that I've experienced.

-Interface is super slick.

-You can, but its a hell of a lot easier to put them in your queue on a computer first.

-Wait times are like <10 seconds and the content is all DVD-quality.

-If you're watching a TV series, it remembers where you left off, even if middle of an episode (I'm currently halfway through Brotherhood Season 2 and think anyone who enjoyed Sopranos will enjoy this).

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

I love this feature of Netflix. There are "Redbox" kiosks around town here where you can rent a movie from a vending machine for 1 dollar a day but I hate them. I spent a whole month's worth of netflix subscription on forgetting to return a movie. I'll never use redbox again but i have been watching the hell out of netflix instant.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

WRT the PS3 disc, I have it and noticed that not all of the movies in my "watch instantly" queue are available for me to watch via the PS3. In fact, a lot of them arent, wtf is going on here.

A quick example is My Cousin Vinny, that is available to watch instantly on the netflix site, but I can't watch it on my PS3 afaik. This was a real buzzkill as for some reason I had an intense urge to watch this classic comedy the day my disc arrived in the mail.
