I love my Netflix!

Postby Shyrtandros » Mon Mar 21, 2011 10:49 am

So this last month I decided to spend a few bucks to get Netflix and I threw it on my Xbox...

It's freakin awesome! I've watched a season of Dexter and Heroes.

Anyone else use netflix? If so any recommendations ? GF wants to watch Lie To Me.. looks interesting.

I watch some of the best terrible horror movies on Netflix and tons of TV series.

It is well worth the money.

yea, it is good for watching movies you'd never pay money to see, like human centipede.

I use it quite a bit for movies and tv series, and more recently a lot of anime. It's well worth the money for unlimited streaming to my laptop imho.

I hate that show, personally, but I'm hardly a barometer for what is/isn't good TV. I just despise shows that prop up the protagonist as some sort of superman who's smarter, cooler, and tougher than anyone in a bazillion mile radius, and even their flaws don't make them genuinely vulnerable or weak in any relatable way. For reference, I despise House for exactly these reasons, so if you like that show, then you'll *probably* like Lie to Me.

I absolutely loved netflix when I had it. My 1 and only gripe with it is the amount of bandwidth it uses up. (I could spend 1 day watching a tv show and use up about 160Gb of my 250Gb Monthly cap.

Some good shows I've enjoyed recently are Parks and Recreation and The League. Parks and Rec took a few episodes to get rolling but there are some good characters. The League is about fantasy football but not really. Lots of funny jokes in that one. Andre: "You guys always make fun of my sensitive teeth." The rest of that bit is in episode four.

Comcast, 250Gb Bandwidth cap per month.

Although I recently switched to Comcast Buisness class, no cap and i get about 60 MbPS down and 10 MbPS up. only cost me 5 dollars more a month.... O.o.

You guys across the pond still have caps on your downloads?

(I must admit, over a certain period of time last year, I downloaded about 1 terra's worth of movies off the uk's university networks :p )

I'm kinda hoping one day we'll all follow sweden's steps... wtb 10MBps uploads speeds....

Yeah...we're looking into going to a small-business class connetion as my house as well. With three adults living (and watching TV) independently in the same house we've been treading very close to that 250 GB cap.

I wonder what the next few years will look like...my house may be among the top 1% of households for now for usage, but I bet that kind of bandwidth use will become extremely common over the next 5-10 years as streaming entertainment continues to skyrocket (which seems a certainty).

You'd think with the higher speeds there would be a higher cap, since you could burn through 250gbs at that speed in a few hours. I'm glad that i have another option besides comcast, cause they just suck for service and price. My qwest line is 40mb/20mb and i pay 49.99 for it, a comparable comcast plan is around 100.

I watch Spartacus, both gods of the arena and blood and sand, lots of movies, and the best is they have most of the MST3K episodes on there. Plus movies that you wouldnt go pay to see in the theater.

Streaming Netflix is win. I watch movies/shows on one monitor while farming in WoW. Watch Master's of Horror: Imprint.
