Does anyone else use Netflix? I used it for a while, but we recently stopped because we caught up with most of our T.V. series. Now that we have a little one, it's very difficult to find time to watch movies lately.

I subscribed once, canceled it before the month was up. The streaming subscription is a waste of money unless you like outdated TV shows and movies. They had NOTHING that I was looking for. Everything is only available on DVD. They are croaks

We have had Netflix for several years now with no problems. I did drop our subscription to streaming only when they changed the prices. Their selection could be better, but I mostly use it for streaming kids shows. What can I say $7.99 a month is a whole lot cheaper than cable! :)

I subscribed to Netflix on and off for the last 7/8 years. I renewed my subscription earlier this year to streaming only so my nephew could watch old cartoons on his Wii. Netflix isn't what it used to be, but it's great if you want to marathon recent TV shows that you missed out on the first time around. In my case, I've been able to watch seasons 1-3 of Breaking Bad, S1 of The Killing & S1 of Downton Abby.

I subscribed to streaming to watch a marathon of Gossip Girl only to find out they have only season 1 available for streaming

We have it and use it a lot for the kids. It has a lot of their favorite shows on there. We still use cable too, but for $7.99 a month Netflix comes in handy. I have wondered before about some of the other services (Blockbuster, etc.) and if they might be better because I admit that Netflix does have some cheesy movies on there.

I used it during the free trial period, but decided not to subscribe. I didn't like their streaming selection all that much, and I got too impatient waiting for DVDs in the mail. Now that the prices have changed, I'm definitely not interested.

The main reason we keep it is for our kids too, although right now the hubby and I are marathoning through NipTuck. I love that show! Fortunately , Netflix has a large selection of Barney, Thomas the Train, and Dora the Explorer so at least I can keep my daughter entertained now and then without having to buy a bunch of movies for $20 or more a pop.

We have it and I am torn about it. Its really just for the kids. I mean where else I can instantly stream Phineas and Ferb or Veggietales at the drop of a hat. But if the price ever goes up, I doubt I will keep it. Nothing on there for me to watch. They need a bigger selection of newer movies.

I am with you Miranda if the price goes up anymore and they don't add a whole bunch of watchable new content I am out. The last really great movie I saw on Netflix was Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and that has been a while ago now.

Thanks for reminding me! I just canceled our account right before it could charge again. Yeah, we never use it anymore. We've pretty much caught up on everything and nothing else they have interests us. Their new stuff tends to suck and the kids don't even like it.

I don't agree with the no kids no netflix thing. I have netflix and love it. Of course you don't use it for current TV or movies, but they have a decent selection of older movies, and a great TV selection for shows from several seasons ago or years ago. I am using it to rewatch a lot of my old favorites and catch up on shows I missed. For the volume you get, the price is still pretty reasonable.

We had thought about getting it and cutting our satellite. But then decided against it. It would be much cheaper but my husband likes having the so called no crap channels and would miss them too much.

No crap channels? I am curious what he thinks those are. To me, most of the channels on satellite is crap.

Such as the history channel. We actually call them the no Sh#t channels. We like to watch shows that you can learn something from or that make you think who did it? That is what I meant by that, LOL.[/quote]

Ok, Netflix is my drug of choice. I will get sucked into TV shows faster than you can say, um, TV Shows. Or, ooo, re-watch old favorites again. My queue list has about 60 things in there. Oy!

But as I've said before to my friends and family - laptop is my favorite channel of all! LoL

I had Netflix then unsubscribed because I was spending time at a neighbor's and he receives the very same programs I was, so, we just got together and watched his DVDs. When we parted company for a time, I found I couldn't resubscribe to Netflix because they weren't sending DVDs (?) to my area and subscribed briefly to Blockbuster until I couldn't afford it anymore. Now I'm back at my neighbor's watching his. LOL

We do, but I mostly rely on hulu to get my shows on. I have stumbled across a good movie or two with Netflix and am currently marathoning my way through Gossip Girl, but in general, I think the streaming selection is still rather sparse.
