Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

I love netflix. I have had no problems with them. I like how they give me the benefit of the doubt. I have recieved broken and scratched discs occasionally (about one every 6 months) and they replace it with no questions asked. It is a great deal if you ask me.

Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

Always good to me. $9 I get at least a movie a week, and then the online thingie. So that would be $2.25 a movie, and that's half the price of the Blockbuster 3 day rental.

Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

I"ve never had netflix, but I've heard mostly good things about them. But i've also had blockbuster on line and i'm pretty happy with , 3 out at a time unlimited, plus 1 free game, and in store exchanges. The only thing they've changed on me was to start to count the in store exchanges as part of my 3, i used to be able take 3 online moves back to BB, switch them out and end up with 6 out at a time.

Honest to god, I've been with Netflix for four years now and have never had a problem with them. I've moved a couple of times, changed card information, rearranged my queue...I have the one at a time plan (8.99/month) and can get seven or eight movies per month. I love Netflix. Period.
I agree.. We have watched so many movies in the past year on NETLFIX streaming it has more than paid for itself!!!

Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

Add me to the "I love Instant Viewing" crowd. I saw all of Karl Urban's Xena episodes and caught completely up on Heroes through Instant Viewing. I don't watch that many discs, so I'm not getting my money's worth on the discs. But that's me being lazy and not watching them faster, which has nothing to do with Netflix's services.

I think I more than make up for it with Instant Viewing.

In the last week we have watched CLASH OF TITANS..LITTLE MAN TATE and a whole bunch of ERNEST movies (okay..not so good). And the HD EPISODES of STAR TREK TOS first season are a very good plus as well!!!

I haven't returned a movie in 9 months, that is how much I use Instant Viewing.

Netflix is pretty awesome. Blockbuster has always been overpriced compared to other video rental stores.

I can so hear you having KU say, "Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor not a Greek god- oh wait I am one too!"

We used to have Blockbuster but they got slow about sending the disks out *and* raised the price. We've had Netflix for about three months and love it. Plus I'm just discovering the Instant Viewing too. I'm so new to the Instant Viewing I never even thought of watching Heroes that way. (Heck I just discovered Youtube a couple months ago). Another positive is that I'm the account holder and am keeping the queue to a minimum- my husband had the Blockbuster one and had like 50 gamillion things in queue and was constantly shuffling them around- drove me nuts.

What I like about NETFLIX is how easy it is. I just go on line, go to their site, pick a movie and..WHAM..its on my XBOX360. They have old BSG--BUCK ROGERS--SPONGEBOB and Batman stuff...Great documentary...even a couple good "NR" movies with, ahem, women!!!

So...I totally endorse NETFLIX...

so Ive noticed that 3 of the anime titles I had on my list have suddenly been moved to the Save list. This includes the 1st & 3rd volumes of a 4 volume set. Does this mean that they lost their copies & arent going to restock them?
It means that the studio has taken that title out of production and the copies Netflix had have been damaged or lost

aw dammit, yeah i think they were titles from that anime distributer that went belly-up recently.

Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

I can't wait 'til I get a job, because when I do, I am SOOO getting NetFlix. My dad has had it for a few years now, and it's awesome. Of course, we're near a distribution center, so that helps with the turnaround time.

And the instant viewing sounds incredible.

And any movie rental company that actually has Rigoletto from Feature Films For Families in its arsenal means they probably have just about anything I'd ever look for (that is on DVD).

Now if only some shows and movies that have either never been released or only been released on VHS would get put on DVD...

Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

I have to admit, I'm startin' to love Netflix. The instant streaming is pretty cool, saw a few movies I always wanted to rent or buy and found... they sucked. So that saved money. Currently got Season 5 of DS9 queued, waiting on Disk 4. Boy that was a kick ass season. I definately think that's worth a buy.

I would love to get myself a bluray player that has the netflix streaming, be more fun than just sitting with my laptop and watching movies, but the nice thing is, I can take my lappy to my ma's office when I'm waiting for her and use the wifi to stream a movie. So that's fun.

Re: Is Netflix a Rip-off?

I've had Netflix for two years now and I really enjoy it. I only have two complaints: 1)sometimes the disc is scratched or broken and won't play(they usually send you another one immediately thereafter) and 2) there is sometimes a very long wait on discs and you're better off going to the video store and renting them there. But otherwise, I've enjoyed netflix. I have the unlimited plan which is around $30 a month or so and it's very much worth the expense as I can rent as many movies as I want.
