Re: Netflix shoots itself in the foot... aka no more free streaming

I really don't understand the appeal of streaming on Netflix? I've tried watching some of their content; it looks like low res crap, and it's constantly jerking and stopping as it needs time to load. I've got AT&T DSL (highest speed offered), so I don't think that's the problem. I've also tried watching on my iPad using Wi-Fi outside of my home and 3G; same low res junk that jerks and stops. I even tried my iPhone thinking about the old convention that smaller screens improve resolution; it still looks like low res crap and doesn't load.

Weird. I stream to my TV, through my bluray. It's a wireless signal, with the router in another room, and I RARELY have a problem. Image is always good. The occasional rebuffer, like 5 times in a year, but, I love it. Tons of documentaries, BBC shows, older movies, foreign movies.

I'll give up the discs before I give up streaming.
