Yea the turn around is fast. I was doing the 10 or so movies a month with the 1 bluray unlimited plan.

After a few months I started to noticed that nearly all the new new movies were listed as "very long wait". For awhile I chalked it up as maybe they just don't have that many blurays in circulation. Well after another couple weeks of this continuing I logged onto my Dad's account and noticed that if I added the same movies to his queue the were listed as "available now", same blurays and we live 15 minutes apart so either way they can't claim DVD to bluray or geographic. I called to see whats up and they told me that since I was considered a "high user" that I was given wait times and that people that didn't watch as many movies are given a high priority for new movies. Now that's kinda messed up and also no where in their small print, just something they do.

he said he doesnt wasn't want to use on demand service that you pay individually, and the comment was directed at dvd rental services.

bleh, that was tl;dr for me at the time and I had just gotten a cleverly disguised advertisement from DirecTV in the mail so it was on my mind

Although I don't subscribe to it... Nutflix would be my suggestion.

I use 2T network storage that can be connected to tv wireless or through HDMI that also have apps as netflix.

I usually download 1080i or 720i movies to it wireless (it's connected to router) and watch it as I find streaming 1080i movie isn't so smooth, rather it lags like crap. Or if I can't find a movie that I would like to watch from torrent, I just use netflix.

You could get this media network storage from WD for $200. Interface is pretty too.

Agreed. Fileserve or Rapidshare + a harddrive and your set


If you don't wanna go the pirating root, as everyone else has said, Netflix is def the best option since you can stream or rent the DVD's for very little a month.

It's already been mentioned but I can't stress this enough...Netflix streaming selections are extremely limited. It's mainly B catalogue titles, TV shows, and foreign.

If you are looking for the newest releases, you will still have to go with a physical disc (or rent on-demand from your cable service, etc.)

This actually makes sense in a strange way, you would think they would want to reward the customer who does more business with them, however in a one price model, you actually want to disincentivize high usage customers they make less off them so they will give new and low usage users priority to keep them verse you.

Even though they can turn around DVD quickly, we do not take advantage of it, be probably only watch 4 or 5 DVD a month and probably about same on streaming. $8.99 a month is still better than going to the movies or doing on demand with Cable or paying the $4.99 or $5.99 for Directv movies.

The cable companies are going to start getting in theater releases on demand and offering them for $30.
